|I faithfully label every plant that goes into a pot or into the ground. I even have an electronic labeling machine. But my labels disappear. Sometimes quite mysteriously. I figure that my garden gnome and his tribe delight in stealing them. There must be a cache somewhere...

Like Trish, I'm somewhat embarrassed when visitors ask about a particular plant , but the label has disappeared and I've forgotten the name. I do have a backup system though. I keep a year-by-year file of all plants I purchase. Now if I could only remember in which year I bought that plant ...
