Pretty right? Exactly why I don’t want to forget what kinds of flowers I bought this year…next year. Or maybe I will want to ditch some of the ones I chose this year – – the cheat sheet will help with that too.
- Plant tags (duh)
- Hole punch
- Marker (optional)
- String/twine/metal ring
To add a little extra information onto my gardening cheat sheet, I added a few notes onto the back of each plant. Totally optional, highly encouraged. I noted where I planted each, how many I planted there, where I bought the baskets, and even how much soil we bought.
As far as I’m concerned, the more information the better! Be as detailed as possible, you will thank yourself next year and save some serious shopping time.
Once you’ve noted everything on the back of each, hole punch each tag and string them through the twine, string or metal ring.
Now pat yourself on the back, because that will possibly be the best 5 minutes you’ve spent all spring! Your gardening tags are organized, easily accessible, and full of fun facts for next year’s planting season.
If I decide to add flowers as we go, I will definitely add the tags right onto this bunch. And if for some reason, a specific plant kicks the bucket… I’ll note that on the back and hopefully remember to skip over that kind next year. Now to the hardest part of this whole project — making sure you remember where the heck you put this cheat sheet when the time comes.
