Awesome Labeling Software for Gardening

By Xeramtheum
November 6, 2013

As a collector of the rare, the unusual, and the hard to find and a hybridizer, I’m always on the lookout for the best way to label and catalog my inventory of seeds and plants as well as the data I collect. Over the years I’ve auditioned various methods, but I finally have evolved a system that is easy to maintain and extremely flexible.

I like your ideas on labelling.
But do they have one which works on the Mac?
I will need to search their site more carefully.

Oh my! I have found a new toy. I may even be able to use some of the templates at work. Thanks!

Great idea Anne.
I see it doesn't work with Windows 7, but they do have an online option for Windows 7.

Hmm .. works just fine in Windows 7 for me. Don't know why it won't work in Windows 7 for you .. did you download the program from the link in this thread I posted for Carolines Mac or the one at the end of the article?

Oops, it was an old review, when it wouldn't work with Windows 7. I see it has been updated. Thumbs up
