A Nursery Label Tip

By CAKnapp
June 16, 2012

Most of the labels received with a new plant get lost or broken. When I purchase a plant that has its own label with all that valuable information (the plant’s real name), I either scan (as a .jpg) or take a photo of both sides of the label. Rename the scan/photo file using the plant’s name (catmint1 for the front of the label, catmint2 for the back). You can take it one step further by photographing the plant and renaming that file also (catmint3). I have created a folder on my pc for “gardening”, and I added under that a folder for “tags”. This way all of the files named catmint are in order when I am looking through my tags and photos.
