Plant List 2012

This list is for my own use; but some of you may find it interesting to see what I sowed/bought and when!

It will not be exciting to read, but it may help me keep better track of what’s happening (namely, when I sowed my first seeds and such)… I do have my little gardening journal, but I rarely ever look back at them!

  1. I know what you mean, Liz. I also have a garden journal but rarely look back at it. Maybe I could “steal” your idea and also keep a page on my blog? I spend much more time looking at it!

    • Hi Paula,

      I do tend to use my journal to look back at jobs I planned to do. But I hope having all the plants and seeds laid out on a page will make it easier to see just exactly what goes on in my garden over the year.

      I’ve input previous plants now and can see I’ve already bought a fair bit and it’s only February! There’s little wonder my decking by the house is looking very full again after having tried my best to get it as clear as possible in Autumn!
