Perennial Scrapbook

If you're a collector like me, you save all the tags from the plants you buy. But how to store them? Scrapbook!

There's lots of different types of scrapbooks you can use. Photo albums work best. I found "magnetic" photo albums at the dollar store. This is the kind that has a sticky clear film on each page. I can easily add new tags as I get them. I cut up the tags so they fit more per page, just retaining the info I need for the plant. I bought several albums and each is devoted to a certain type of plant, such as perennials, shrubs, etc. I can easily flip thru to find the info I need.

Another option is to create pages for each plant and keep in a binder notebook. You could include photos of the plants and all the info you want such as where and when you acquired the plant, its history in your garden, and whatever you've learned about it.

Thats is a great idea. I have no clue what half the things I have growing are. Or what their names are. Shadows
