Plant and flower success indicator to measure garden conditions

The Saratoga Springs High School InvenTeam is developing a Garden Consultant. The Consultant will initially offer a "Perfect Plant" Recommendation based upon historical data from on-line resources . The consultant will then collect data derived from sensors "planted" in the user's garden ( i.e. sunlight, wind, pH, temperature). After recording data for one growing season the Garden Consultant will be able to better predict the next growing season and create an even more accurate "Perfect Plant" Recommendation. The Garden Consultant System will help gardeners choose plants that will have a greater success rate than the rates of plants they might choose on their own. The Garden Consultant is also environmentally friendly, because rather than chemically treating a garden environment to suit plants, the user is only planting plants suited to the environment.
