Haven't played the whole thing yet, but the first 3 venues offer some nice changes & additions to the familiar Dash series. I like this one a lot. Your customers are the plants rather than steaming people. They each require some extra steps & for the first time in the whole series, there is actual strategy required to complete levels in expert time -- mostly regarding thinking ahead about when to use "relax" points & how many of which plants to plant (b/c color matching adds time, which is important in all Dash games and to complete on expert levels, which I find the whole point of Dash games.) As has become usual, there is another whole expert level to each venue, and they are harder, of course. Upgrades are fun & interesting, also requiring some thinking. This is the right amount of thinking & clicking -- a happy medium finally for Dash! Each venue starts REALLY easily. Each venue adds plants quickly, and deciding on which pots to add is interesting at times. This one will feel familiar to Dash players, but some thinking (unusual for this series) is finally needed, and with it comes a decidedly nice change to the Dash games. Well done, PlayFirst!

I usually love Diner Dash games but this one is way too hard. Too many people to serve in too little time and too many other things to have to do. I love the concept but gave up on the 3rd or 4th level.

love the Dash games. this one is great. grow plants to sell vegetables/flowers/fruit-the upgrades were very helpful-better soil/faster shoes/gadgets to help with h2oing, harvesting, clothing peaches, talking to cucumbers, playing music for roses, spraying perfume on garlic. very imaginative. cool as usual to see Flo helping a friend out. this one must be added to my game library...

It's not as good as the other Diner Dash games but it's not bad either. Not quite as interesting or challegning but I did enjoy it.

I was disappointed that the game didn't provide more of a challenge. I beat it in less than three hours. It was a waste of my time and money.

In this game, you dash around growing plants and deliver them to customers coming by. It's so fast you hardly see who you're serving because you don't really look at them but what they order. So, there isn't much original about it in either regard--dashing or plants. On the plus side, you can get into a groove in this game and beat it, although I haven't got experts on all levels so far. It's like Jessica's Cupcake Cafe in that getting a rhythm going is about the only way to beat it, so it offers some challenge, and that's a positive. You can also move the planters around, but none of the other things, like the manure or the dirt or the spray cans, etc. And you can go back and replay for expert. On the minus side, the repetition isn't fun like it is in Jessica's Cupcake Cafe. So it gets a little tiring. You have hardly any choice in upgrades. For example, in the planters, if you have purchased an upgrade, you can only replace that upgrade with a different kind, not add more upgrades. And non-planter upgrades are also the same no matter the venue, which aren't very interesting either--rooftops, empty lots. Furthermore, there is no extra help to hire, and it is hard to color match because the onions look green on the order but the planter for them is yellow. And it's supposed to rain every now and then so you don't have to water plants at that time, and unless I just forgot, there was rain only on the first venue, and you could hardly tell it was raining because it was nothing more than a sprinkle with no clouding over or sound effects--a real downer, so to speak. I was hoping for a good storm. In addition, you have to do silly things like click on planters if a wind comes or if a dog comes around. Now that I write all the negatives, I changed my rating from the 4 stars I was going to give it (after all, I'm still playing it and have just a few levels to the end, so something is keeping my attention), but all in all, there are other Dashes much more worth staying up too late playing.

Fun to play. Not particularly mental, but a great game to play between chores. I had fun with it. Recommended for beginner to medium gamers.

I like this game. It's a fun twist on the Diner Dash series. But yet still stands on it's own.

Very easy to play, very challenging, and very addictive!

This game is really fun-for the first few rounds. Then it becomes almost impossible to complete the levels. Level 8 was tricky, level 9 took 2 days too finish but I still haven't finished level 10. And that's just on the first round.I think it takes someone better skilled than me to play. I get bored fast when I have to keep replaying and getting no results.

Disappointing, close to boring - not much for increasing challenge and you advance levels.

I like the graphics, pretty nice and colorful. Story is not so much, a little silly and funny. The game is not very challenging and pretty short. Though it requires some thinking as to placing pots, choosing upgrades and pot sizes, and planning clicks, it still leans on more clicking. I would like it better if it had more venues to play. It does have a more difficult mode that can be unlock during the game each time you complete a venue. I was not very thrill to replay for some reasons even though I usually try to complete the trophies. Considering its shortness, it doesn't really worth to buy.

Cute, colorful, cartoon graphics are nicer than they appear in the screenshots. I like gardening, so I enjoy trying any related games. But as with so many time management games, the Dash developers forgot about TM novices, and how hard it can be hard to get up to speed when that speed is a little fast. Other reviewers noted that Garden Dash was easy or for beginners. Maybe ... if you are already good at TM games. There was a lot of repetition in the tasks, which is helpful (or boring, your choice), but trying to get everything done takes some work and thought in planning ahead in order to beat the timer. If there were an easy or untimed option, I would enjoy playing this more, but stress and casual gardening are not supposed to be synonymous!

Garden is harder than past dash games, which makes it more challenging. This time there's a time limit. As a result this becomes more about thinking like a puzzle in order to continue. Chains are hard to come to by unless thought thru thoroughly.

Game worked until the 3rd level when the clothing for the peaches did not appear - no clothing no peaches - no way to continue - need to work some bugs out - however, I like the concept and like the Other Dineer Dashes, it is charming and requires thinking and timing on the player's part
