Early November: the latest news from Planty

Today's blog is all about why we're offering a 10% discount this month, updates to the Planty Gardening app, and preparing your garden boxes for winter.
Yup, winter has arrived. It's getting dark earlier in the evening, we're harvesting with a flashlight, and in some places, the temperature has already dropped below 0°C.

So, it's time to get your garden boxes ready for winter. That's 1 of the main topics today, plus a few other fun things.

Updates to the Planty Gardening app

In the past few months, we've collected all the feedback about our Planty app. Our app gurus Jelmer and Johan have been tweaking and improving it. Today all the updates are ready for you 😀 Just refresh your Planty Gardening app to be sure that you have the latest version.

If you haven't downloaded it yet: the Planty Gardening app is your personal vegetable gardening coach. It walks you through every part of the growing process, from seed to harvest, step by step. It's makes everything even easier.
A new version of the app in Dutch - de Makkelijke Moestuin app - is out now too. It's available in the Netherlands and Belgium. So if you speak Dutch, this is the app for you.

Early bird discount

So, in spring it seems like everybody has the same thought: "Oh, what beautiful weather! I'll start a vegetable garden."

That means in March, we'll get swamped with orders. We're not complaining 😉 But we can't predict exactly how much of which products to have in stock. We do our best, but you never know.

So, that's why we want to spread out the orders a little. That way we can better order our stock and don't have to ship everything at once.

If you know you want something for next spring, it would help us out a lot if you order it now. To thank you for your help, we're giving a 10% discount on everything for the whole month of November. Even our super deluxe MM-Bamboos.

So this isn't your average sale, because all our stuff is new: the garden boxes, the MM-Mini grow bags, the soil mix. The seeds are fresh and can be used until early 2024.

You're also helping yourself - with the global shortages, we just don't know how things will go next spring. Even our friends at the soil company are feeling a bit gloomy 🙁 Prices will probably go up.

But hey, we'll cross that bridge when we get to it. For now, just enjoy the discount 😀

Get your Planty Garden ready for winter

This is one of those things that gets left half-finished sometimes. I'm too busy, don't feel like going outside, the weather's bad, I need to do something else, I don't feel well...

Sound familiar? There are countless excuses to get out of it. But actually, it couldn't be easier.

So, let's talk about how to keep it easy.

Just when to do it depends on the weather. Sometimes it's already freezing in October. Sometimes, it's still so mild in January it seems like we're skipping winter altogether. But if you stick to November, you can't really go wrong.

So, that's it for today

We're really happy we can share the updated Planty Gardening app with you. And are excited the new Makkelijke Moetuin app is ready for Dutch speakers too. If anything goes wrong, Johan and Jelmer are on standby all day. Just use the contact page to get in touch.

Oh, and if you haven't noticed - everything in the shop is 10% off the whole month of November 😉 Just for you.

Enjoy the fall season and see you next time!
