Good records are as important to gardening as good soil. With detailed notes, a gardener knows what tasks were completed and when, which seed strains grew and which failed to thrive, when the tomatoes were set out, and what works in their particular plot of earth and what doesnt. Proper recordkeeping is much easier and far more enjoyable with the The Royal Horticultural Society Gardener's Notebook. This handsome, structured record book includes an undated journal section that allows for flexible recording of day-to-day activities, crop rotation charts for the vegetable patch, space to record dates and yields of crops, graph paper to plan out beds, and even a section for expenses and suppliers. Spiral-bound, with an elastic closure and eight tabbed dividers, and illustrated throughout with color images from the Royal Horticultural Societys Lindley Library, the journal is a thoughtful gift for any gardener.
