Keeping a gardening journal is a great way to build up a record of your gardening experience so you can learn from the things that work – and those that don’t!

You can use your gardening journal to keep track of what was sown, planted, tended and harvested, or to record any pests or diseases in your garden. Over time this makes it easy to refer back to previous years, refine your methods to suit your garden’s unique growing conditions, and make each gardening year even better than the last.

Introducing the Garden Journal 

The number-one most requested feature by users of our Vegetable Garden Planner is a garden journal to help record what's going on in your garden. We’ve used feedback to create a fantastic Garden Journal that makes tracking progress in the garden quick and easy. It can be used on any Internet-connected smartphone, tablet, or computer, and you can instantly upload photos and notes from your device. Our Garden Journal will help you to learn with every observation, note and photo you add. And it’s completely free to use!

Using Your Garden Journal

To open the Garden Journal, login to your Garden Planner account and select the Garden Journal link. The Journal will automatically show the current week, but you can also view other weeks using the Timeline at the top of the page.

Add notes, observations, and ideas, or select any of the Planting, Watering, Tending or Harvesting options to record your gardening progress. The Tending option also includes options for Weeding, Fertilizing, Transplanting, Mulching and Pruning.

The icons and Add buttons display your activity as you add more records, and the Timeline provides a snapshot of your weekly activity.

Add photos from a folder on your computer or device, or take a photo on your phone or tablet to upload it to your Journal straight away.
