I'm resolving to do better documenting seed sowing, planting, propagation efforts in 2018. I've started to see what others have posted and its helps me to judge timelines, ask questions, etc.

I notice that in the choices for the Plant Log Events there are several for seed sowing (date sown, date germinated, etc)...I wonder if it would be possible to a field for cuttings taken or cuttings stuck...and possibly cuttings rooted? Seems like it would be easy but sometimes what we thing is easy, isn't so much. I know you can work around it by using other fields (Plant Maintenance perhaps) but it would be cleaner if other fields were available.

Just a suggestion...if there's a better place to post this for IT guru review, please let me know!

Sad. It's been a month and no one has yet responded.

Might I suggest you look into the garden planner that was offered not too long ago. Each of us has their own way of keeping track of things and the garden planner may help individuals.

@greene - thanks for the note! I hadn't seen that. Enjoyed the video. Started journalling in a notebook. I'm torn because that's kind of easier, but when others do this I've read their reports for seeds I'm sowing, etc and have asked questions. Just need to figure out what works best for me!

@dave - what do you think about adding a few more event types to the plant log?
Plant Authorities: Catalogue of Life (Species) --- International Cultivar Registration Authorities (Cultivars) --- RHS Orchid Register --- RHS Lilium Register
My Notes: Orchid Genera HTML PDF Excel --- Lilium Traits HTML PDF --- Lilium Species Crosses HTML PDF Excel --- Lilium Species Diagram
