Spring if finally here, so what better time to start a gardening journal? Whether you buy a fancy one with blanks to fill in or use a pretty journal with empty pages, these handy books help you keep track of what you plant each year and where, keep notes about everything garden related, sketch out new landscape ideas, and make lists of the plants and supplies you need to pick up on your next trip to town. Some even come with pockets for storing seed packets.
Garden journals make excellent gifts, something to keep in mind with Mother’s Day coming up.
If you’re an avid gardener who likes a good cozy mystery, you might want to check out Poison, Perennials, and a Poltergeist and Secrets, Snapdragons, and a Spirit, the first two books in my Petal Pushers Mystery Series.
