Seedtime intro


First customizable garden planning app


Seedtime is a simple-to-use customizable planning tool for a garden or a small farm. The tool lets you plan activities in your garden all year round based on your local area, climate, types of plants you grow, planting conditions (open-air or a greenhouse), and even your time off.

The app has a pre-installed editable library of over 30 popular veggies and herbs with full information on when to seed, transplant, and harvest each of them. Drag and drop crops from the library, get tried-and-true tips on how to treat them, and follow your personalized weekly task list of what to do each week to grow pure, nutrient-dense food easily.

Railsware's work was instrumental in helping us accomplish our goals and receive great feedback from users. Their excellent project management and diverse tools were key to the engagement's success.

Railsware product discovery process was highly valuable, it helped us bring clarity to the project from the very beginning. The team was very good at communication and execution and worked exceptionally well. They also had an excellent sign-on process to ensure everyone was on the same page.


Railsware joined the Seedtime project when the Alpha version of the product was ready. During the BRIDGeS session, we chose the development strategy, created a development roadmap with milestones, and defined the scope for next releases.

To let all potential users benefit from the product, we created and launched a web app accessible on any device and platform. During the development process, we ran numerous user interview sessions to ensure the UI and UX of the product are intuitive and user-friendly. We also used the customer development sessions to guarantee the end-users would have all the most necessary features in the first release.
