Designed for the gardener who wants to enjoy the benefits of gardening, without the frustrations. FOR THE COST OF ONE SIMPLE GARDEN TOOL, you can OWN THE MOST VALUABLE GARDEN TOOL OF ALL ~ one that will save you money and help you learn from experience.


Even more valuable than your favorite garden trowel or spade is a written record of what works in your garden. WHILE GARDENING BOOKS, APPS AND THE INTERNET ARE FULL OF GREAT ADVICE, THEY CAN'T REPLACE PERSONAL EXPERIENCE. Your garden is in your micro-climate, with your soil. Perennials in one part of the country aren't perennials in another. There are simply too many plants and too many variables for anyone to remember from year to year what worked where and what didn't and why.

You need to remember WHAT WORKS FOR YOU--IN YOUR GARDEN. Every gardener faces repeat attacks of pests or disease and needs to remember which treatment worked and which did more harm than good. Every gardener has weeded out emerging perennials, forgetting what they planted where. Every gardener needs a memory!

Please STOP here and consider your needs: If you want options in your methods of recording, this is the journal for you! If you want a simpler garden journal, please click on the author's name and check out the smaller version, entitled The Garden Diary, Journal & Log Book. It has the same charts and helpful recommendations, but only three basic forms to fill out.

This book has twenty-eight forms by comparison. While you don't have to use all the forms, having them available will give you the knowledge needed to become the best gardener possible. See the description below:

THE GARDEN JOURNAL, PLANNER & LOG BOOK is a book of garden forms with the flexibility needed to personalize your style of record keeping. With this one book you can track your purchases from store to harvest to propagation. What really makes the difference between a great and a mediocre garden is how well the gardener keeps track of all the information needed to enhance success and avoid repeated failures.

GARDENING IS AN ART, BUT IT'S ALSO A SCIENCE.

THE GARDEN JOURNAL, PLANNER & LOG BOOK is designed to make record-keeping simple and easy. Every form is designed to include all the pertinent information needed, while minimizing the amount of time required to record that information. Use as many or as few forms as you desire:
  • Individual plant pages with over fifty possible check boxes for each plant, plus space for additional info, photos, drawings, seed packets or tags. 
  • Logs for annuals, biennials and perennials, with code, location and date planted.
  • Logs for weather, formulas & recipes, pests and diseases, cultivation and propagation, bloom and harvest times, flowers, bulbs, fruit, vegetables, herbs, vines, shrubs, trees, wildlife sightings and hardscaping.
  • Prune, trim and tidy logs with guidelines.
  • Planning pages for up to four years.
  • Draw out garden plots for twenty beds on graph paper with notes on the pages opposite.
  • Purchase record logs.
  • Supplier contact list.
  • Keep a diary for all the things you simply must write out using sentences or drawings, because as much as gardening is a science, it is an art above all.
YOUR GARDEN WILL LOOK LIKE ART,
but you will know that 
THE GARDEN JOURNAL, PLANNER & LOG BOOK 
is the science behind your success.

The Seed Garden: The Art and Practice of Seed Saving

The Seed Garden: The Art and Practice of Seed Saving Lowest new price: $18.85
Lowest used price: $17.20
List price: $29.95
Brand: Buttala Lee

Winner of the American Horticultural Society Award for Excellence In Garden Book Publishing

Winner of the Silver Medal for Best Reference from the Garden Writer’s Association

Filled with advice for the home gardener and the more seasoned horticulturist alike, The Seed Garden: The Art and Practice of Seed Saving provides straightforward instruction on collecting seed that is true-to-type and ready for sowing in next year’s garden. In this comprehensive book, Seed Savers Exchange, one of the foremost American authorities on the subject, and the Organic Seed Alliance bring together decades of knowledge to demystify the time-honored tradition of saving the seed of more than seventy-five coveted vegetable and herb crops―from heirloom tomatoes and long-favored varieties of beans, lettuces, and cabbages to centuries-old varieties of peppers and grains.

With clear instructions, lush photographs, and easy-to-comprehend profiles on individual vegetable crops, this book not only teaches us how to go about conserving these important varieties for future generations and for planting out in next year’s garden, it also provides a deeper understanding of the importance of saving these genetically valuable varieties of vegetables that have evolved over the centuries through careful selection by farmers and home gardeners.

Through simple lessons and master classes on crop selection, pollination, roguing, and the processes of harvesting and storing seeds, this book ensures that these time-honored traditions can continue. Many of these vegetable varieties are treasured for traits that are singular to their strain, whether that is a resistance to disease, an ability to grow well in a region for which that crop is not typically well suited, resistance to early bolting, or simply because it is a great-tasting variety. In an age of genetically modified crops and hybrid seed, a growing appreciation for saving seeds of these time-tested, open-pollinated cultivars has found a new audience from home vegetable gardeners and cooks to restaurant chefs and local farmers.

Whether interested in simply saving seeds for home use or working to conserve rare varieties of beloved squashes and tomatoes, this book provides a deeper understanding of the art, the science, and the joy of saving seeds.
