Black & Decker PlantSmart SO Cool!

Plant Smart by Black & Decker: a whole new techie way of gardening.

Black & Decker has just found a way into my heart.   I love to garden!  I’m not the best at it.  But I really like it.   Let’s face facts… when it comes to all this blather about soils and additives and enhancements to make this grow or that grow or worrying about which zones are good for this or for that… I get overwhelmed.

Well, it looks like Black & Decker is taking the guesswork out of what will grow in your soil and, frankly, what won’t.

The Black & Decker PlantSmart PCS10 Digital Plant Care Sensor is the Fish Finder for Gardeners.   Equipped with sensors, you place the PCS10 into your soil or plant container or what have you and the sensors read and measure sunlight, soil moisture, temperature, and soil conditions.   It will make recommendations on what kind of plants will grow in that soil, health recommendations and will even tell you if the plant needs watering.  After 24 hours, you remove the top part which then plugs into the USB port of your computer and you get all the data right there.  There is subscription fee that will allow you to take it to the next level and give you feedback on your soil’s fertility.    Simply put:  I have got to have one!!!  $49.99 at Target and Ben’s Bargains.  $39.99 on Amazon.com.

    Okay, but what does the tacky 60’s flower-power petal do except detract from the real flowers? Why does it have to be i-whatever white instead of a color that would blend in with the garden?
