      Not what I expected

      By M the orchardist

      from Santa Cruz, CA

      Verified Buyer

      Pros

        Cons

        • Not A 5-year Journal

        Best Uses

        • As A One-year Journal

        I returned the product because it is not organized in a way that permits comparisons between what happened on a given date over a 5-year period; moreover, the journal could not be adapted to that purpose. I am perplexed by its catalogue description as a "five-year garden journal."

          This was a lovely journal with many useful functions and recording options. The person receiving was thrilled, as she and I are both Rose Society members and would use it completely. I wish I could have gotton one for myself too, it's a little expensive, but well worth it.

          from Greensboro, GA

          Verified Buyer

          Pros

          • Easy To Go Year To Year
          • Easy To Make Entries
          • Great Legacy Gift
          • Great Size - Good Layou
          • Makes a great gift

          Cons

            Best Uses

            • How Plants Performed
            • Keep Track Of Plants
            • Location Of Plants
            • What Plants Bought
            • What Plants Died
            • What Plants To Replace
            • When Planted In Garden
            • Where To Plant New Plants

            I love the size as it is easy to carry with you to a garden center with your notes in it to purchase new plants or replace plants that have died. Also as you shop and look it is with you to make notes in it for purchases or prospective purchases, etc. You also have notes on your garden with you where you can look for specific plants for hard to please areas of your garden, such as spots that stay damp or wet, very dry areas, etc.

                My old garden journal got lost in a move, so I purchased this one to start over. I like it a lot - it has a lot of pages and is set up to give you flexibility for using it. The little tips and checklists throughout as well as the seed envelope in back are convenient features.
