What fun categories are folks creating in their plant lists? I've got available to trade, stuff I want to get in trade, and stuff I want to remember to try propagating this spring. What are you doing with it? Let's give each other enabling ideas!

Some have been using this feature quite awhile. Virginiarose, for one, has lots of categories listed. So does chelle, among others.

I thought it was a new thing when I saw a discussion a few days ago. When I asked about trading lists a few months ago, I'm pretty sure there wasn't any way to look at people's lists by just 'available to trade' plants.

I agree, Tiffany, there are some nice features here as far as keeping a plant list. So much easier than some places. ♥

How about:

- Plants I can't grow no matter how many times I try (but I want to grow them!)

- Plants I am proudest of

- My Plants most resistant to ... (deer, slugs, drought, wind, clay, sand, insects ...)

- Flowers to start indoors 8-12 weeks before last frost
- Flowers to start indoors 6-8 weeks before last frost
- Flowers and Vegetables to start indoors 2-4 weeks before last frost

- Flowers to Wintersow in January
- Flowers to "Wintersow" in early Spring

I created a Wish and Trade list separate from my individual plant categories when I first started here on ATP.

I only track plants I have, it would be depressing to track ones I've killed, and I keep a running Wish List as a Word document that I print and take with me to nurseries.

Categories I use are type of plant (tree, shrub, perennial, etc), use (aromatic, medicinal, edible, etc) and I also have a native and invasive category. I use invasive to indicate non-native invasives for my area, not whether the plant is otherwise invasive (a la most ground covers). Each plant might be categorized in 2-3 ways and I can run specific lists (e.g., native trees or aromatic perennials) as needed.

A more personal category is "Start for Laur" which are all the plants I have that my sister would like a start of. Makes it easy for me to know what to chunk off in the spring when things start emerging. She and I are in different zones but can often share bounty.
I want to live in a world where the chicken can cross the road without its motives being questioned.

Sue, if you get a chance to take a pic of your Siderasis fuscata, it would be great to have it for this plant in the database, there isn't one yet.
