Garden with Insight v1.0 Help: How to change the drawing scale of all plants in the garden
The drawing scale is how large the plants are drawn on the screen in relation to how large they are
simulated to be. Scale is in units of pixels of screen per millimeter of
distances (such as plant stem lengths). A scale of 1.0 pixels/mm is reasonable for a backyard garden. For a
window box, you might want to use a scale of 2.0 pixels/mm.

Each soil patch has its own drawing scale (see How to change the
drawing scale of all plants in a soil patch). You can change the scale for the entire garden by either
amending or overriding the soil patch scales. To change the drawing scale for the whole garden, choose
Display from the Options menu on the garden window.
