|Since I don't care for labels, I make maps. Microsoft Excel is a great program for creating maps, especially if the plants are in rows or can be represented on a regular grid. Here is a map of one of my iris beds:|
The color coding allows me to easily keep track of many things like which ones aren't growing well (yellow), which ones are growing well but didn't bloom (orange), which were divided this year (green bar), etc. The possibilities are almost endless.
