If you're someone who has trouble remembering when you used fertiliser on your plants or when you watered them, it's time you got yourself a garden journal. This will help you keep track of your greenery.
- A large diary
- A ring-binder
- Coloured tabs or dividers
Gardening is a stress-release activity. So, make sure the pages are light, colorful and fun. Each section can have a vibrant heading, information spaceholders and borders. You can add photos of your own plants to decorate the pages.
Info to include
The journal has to keep a track of all your plants — when you bought and planted them and how to take care of them. Write each plant's common name as well as its botanical name, its light and water requirements and a record of seedlings and cuttings.
