Free Gardening Game Apps

Some of the free gardening apps available for your android are just for fun.

“Garden,” for instance, is a three-match game. Using a virtual spade, players plant and move flowers. The goal? To harvest three flowers in a row that are the same color. It sounds easy, but it’s not. Honeybees can change a flower’s color, and stones can steal your planting spot. But, with luck, you could plant a magic flower that matches any color. Flowers come in seven colors.

Using the game app “Green Tree,” you can plant a virtual tree as live wallpaper on your droid screen. Care for it well, and watch it grow! When you’re too busy to monitor your tree, simply set the game on pause.


Free Gardening Wallpaper Apps

App users give “Flowers Wallpapers” high marks for its high-quality color pictures of popular flowers, including roses, daisies, and tulips. With "Flowers Wallpapers," you can also rate images and save them to your SD card.

“Daisy Live Wallpaper Lite” features cascading wildflowers for each page of your droid screen. Tap the flowers, and their petals pop. The “non-lite” version, “Daisy Live Wallpaper,” offers additional flower options.

With the “Daisy Garden Lite” app, you can “grow” virtual flowers to display on your phone's screen. You can also share flowers with other “Daisy Garden Lite” gardeners for their virtual gardens. The “full” version of this app, "Daisy Garden,” costs a little over $1.

 

WHERE TO GET THEM

Each of these free gardening apps, as well as many others, are readily available online. Download them to your droid, or simply scan them into your phone.
