Garden Games

Game Screen from "Fiona Finch and the Finest Flowers."

We've come a long way with computer graphics and games since the days of Pong and Pac-Man! This morning, I noticed an advertisement for a PC Time Management game called "Fiona Finch and the Finest Flowers" on my screen. According to the game description, you can help Fiona plant seeds and bulbs, craft bouquets, use fruit dryers, jam boilers and perfume makers, crossbreed flowers and win the town gardening competition.

I have never played this game, but it looks really interesting. Plus, it has received positive reviews on the Internet. I imagine gardeners like me are the target audience...

I'd much rather garden outside, but I may need to settle for virtual gardening today since it is snowing (AGAIN!) in Virginia.

For more details and ordering information about this PC game download, check out game sites like:


This particular website features a short video about "Fiona Finch and the Finest Flowers." A few other PC games that may appeal to green thumbs include: Alice Greenfingers, Plant Tycoon, Magic Seeds, Garden Dreams, Gardenscapes, Ranch Rush, Kelly Green Garden Queen, Enchanted Gardens, and many more. FarmVille is a similar agriculturally-themed game played on Facebook.
