. . . would get so excited about finding an old envelope full of plant labels and old garden centre receipts.
The more plants I buy the less I remember their names, so I have started a book for all my plant labels. It’s one of those books that you can slip things in – I hold the labels in place with Blue Tac. It is great for a quick search when you can’t remember the name of something.
I am also hoping to gradually add all my plants to the catalogue tab of this website.
Mind you I have just made a list (you know the good old fashioned paper list) and I have over a hundred plants I want to add so it might take me a few years…
I do try to get more organised….
For example last year I made a list of all the things I wanted to do in the garden when the time was right. I have to say I haven’t found it very helpful. Mostly this is because I can’t read my own writing but sometimes even when I can it doesn’t help a lot!
Here are some examples:
- Move maroon _ _ _ _ _ _ _ as too dry
(I clearly couldn’t remember the name!)
- Red ground cover from rockery near path
- Tree thing to middle
- Clear some pink stuff
You see what I mean?
Please join in with my ‘Only a Gardener’ meme. I am sure there must be many things that only a gardener would do or get excited about…..
It can be anything from a whole blog to a few words or even just a picture.
I will try to publish on 1st of each month – the same day as April fool’s day, but I think this could run for the first week of the month so it isn’t too close to Helen’s End of Month View.
Just add a tag ‘Only a Gardener’ to your post so it can be found easily and add your link in a comment to this page.
If you don’t have a blog then please do let me know of the crazy things you do by adding a comment to this post. I would love to hear from you.
