The Gardening Notebook

Do you read gardening books and think, “Oh, I need to remember that”?

And then later can’t remember what you were supposed to remember?

Do you take care to write down what you planted and harvested one year only to not be able to find the paper the next year?

When you have a question that you used to know the answer to, do you have to go through several books or internet searches to find the answer? All the while thinking, “I’ll remember it this time.”

I used to do this all the time. Since I’m somewhat of a fly by the seat of my pants kinda girl, it only mildly bothered me, but the more I planted the more it bothered me. So I began keeping a gardening notebook. It helped me be a better gardener.

After weeks of putting my new notebook together, my husband mentioned that other gardeners would probably like a copy. And so we began the work of making a notebook for any gardener. 

The Gardening Notebook is custom printable garden planner to help you keep track of everything that is important to you in your gardening. The more you add to it, the more you it becomes.

The Gardening Notebook contains the following:
  • How to begin gardening
  • Enriching the garden (soil, compost, etc.)
  • Garden Calendar
  • How to find your frost dates
  • Planting by frost dates calendar
  • Local resource contact page
  • Garden expense worksheet
  • Seed and plant purchase record


There are also worksheets with tips for growing vegetables, fruits, herbs and ornamentals – with plenty of room for you to write your own notes from your own research

  • Seed sowing record
  • Garden layout pages
  • Pests, problems and solutions worksheet
  • Book list record
  • Monthly journal
  • Resource list
  • Lots of space for you to make notes of what is important to you
  • Blank plant profile page to help keep track of specific plants and varieties
  • Blank plant worksheets to fill out for the vegetables, fruits, herbs and ornamentals not already included


The Gardening Notebook will help you keep all the important information in one place so that you will have more time to spend in the garden.

What other gardeners are saying about The Gardening Notebook…

The Gardening Notebook is a resource that will give you basic information on many vegetables with ample space for recording your garden specific experience from which to learn and apply year after year. I highly recommend this source to novice and experienced gardeners alike to cultivate good record keeping skills that will pay off in better growing habits and garden yields in the future.”
Kathie from Homespun Seasonal Living

The Gardening Notebook provides a starting point for beginners and a base that advanced gardeners may customize to include their own areas of interest.”
Lisa Lynn from The Self Sufficient HomeAcre

 “…this book is full of printables – and I was blown away by the thoroughness of all Angi’s included! There are pages for recording the seeds you have and need to buy, a place to keep a record of the seeds you started, plants you have, and varieties you want to try. Additionally, pages at the beginning will help you determine why you garden and record the specifics of your corner of the world (like your last frost date – wouldn’t that be awesome to have in one place to refer to?) as well as create a garden plan.”

 What a fun resource! It’s full of helpful gardening information, as well as loads of nice printables to help us get organized for this year and for years to come.”

Can you tell me what the plant is with the tiny blue flowers that you have shown on the page promoting your garden notebook?

I had this come up in my garden late last year and have no idea what it is.

Love your site. So much information.

Thanks, Lisa Mecham

Hi Lisa,

The plant with the blue flowers is borage. The bees LOVE it, and it's pretty tasty - has a cucumber like flavor. Here's some more information on it, Hope this helps.
