Gardener’s Log Book
A 5-Year Planner
by The New York Botanical Garden
I choose the Gardener’s Log Book by the New York Botanical Garden because of my Mother’s and my Husband’s equal love of gardening. I thought this would be the perfect planner for them to use to plan out their plants over time. They both love it!
The book itself is small and able to be easily carried but not too small that you can’t read it easily or write the necessary info inside easily. It features a waterproof cover, with an elastic rope to hold the cover closed when not in use. It was shipped with cardboard inside to help hold the book’s shape and for now, we have left those in place.
The pages inside are awesome. The pages are slightly thicker so when you’re working on your garden and your hands are slightly grungy, you can easily grab a hold and make the marks or notes that you need to.
Inside, there is room to write out the names of Plants you’re interested in and mark when they grow best for your area. The book is sectioned into seasons: Winter, Spring, Summer and Fall. As mentioned above, it is a 5 year planner with plenty of room. There are note pages and grids inside to use as needed.
Both of the gardener’s in our home were really impressed with this book and look forward to using it for their needs. I’m probably going to need to order a second copy but for $16.99 the cost is not bad. If you love gardening as much as my family does, you’ll want to add the Gardener’s Log Book to your gardening supplies right away.
