Gardening journal

From EverybodyWiki Bios & Wiki

A gardening journal helps gardeners improve their efforts over time by providing a historical record of actions taken, the weather and other elements and the results.

Example data points[edit]

Some data points worth tracking:

  • planting dates
  • transplanting dates
  • source and cost information for plants and seeds
  • weather particulars such as rainfall, frost dates and results
  • plant characteristics, date of germination, date they emerge in spring, appearance of blooms
  • date of harvest (for vegetables) or cut flowers taken
  • date and type of fertilizer or other chemicals applied, and to which plants
  • observations
  • photographs

Famous gardening journals[edit]

Among the most famous keepers of gardening journals are Thomas Jefferson, Claude Monet, Vita Sackville-West and Lady Skipwith.[1][2] Sackville-Wests' gardens at Sissinghurst Castle are kept today based on her written details.
