Journal Your Garden Progress to Become a Better Gardener

Journal Your Garden Progress to Become a Better Gardener

The best education for any gardener is experience, and keeping a gardening journal is a great way to build up a record of your experience. That way you can learn from the things that work – and don’t!

We’re introducing a brand new Garden Journal which is intuitively easy to use, looks stunning and, best of all, it’s completely free.

In this short video we’ll show you how using the Garden Journal can help make this year’s garden your most successful ever – and next year’s even better!

The Garden Journal works through your web browser and works with desktop, tablet or mobile devices. It’s available through the websites:
and many more…

If you love growing your own food, why not take a look at our online Garden Planner which is available from several major websites and seed suppliers:

    I would like to add a comment with the gardentask. If I plant out a plant in the garden, I also want to write a comment on where I planted it.
    If i sow I want to comment where I sow it ( indoor, outdoor or in the greenhouse) and when I fertilized what kind of fertilizer I used.
    A comment please and I will use it.

    Sounds just like what I need. I had started using Microsoft’s OneNote but this is so much better. I have one concern can you freeform enter plants where an appropriate variety choice does not exist in your database?

    very intersesting!

    How do I get the app? I can’t find it on the iPhone Apple App Store. I would really love to be able to use this so I’d appreciate your help in finding the app. Thanks.

    It’s not an app. From what I gather it’s through their website (which I’ve never been to, yet, will fix that). You can’t take your PC into the garden and you don’t want to run back and forth taking notes, kills the convenience, you could take your laptop but it won’t fit in your pocket and you have to drag it around with you and you’ll need wifi for pc/laptop. My memory would not last until the end of the gardening, So…. you use your smart phone. Open up your web browser, go to the website, log into your account/profile use your journal. No app. You’ll either need wifi from your home wireless router or use your data while you’re outside if the wifi (if you have it with your home network) doesn’t reach as far as your garden. It’s free. I’m a note taker. This is cool. Notes during telephone conversations (business not fun), for ideas I get, notes to myself to do something that I will do in a couple of days, always jotting something down. My organization/filing stinks, though. A lot of now where didi I put that? It was right here. I have trouble locating it afterwards if it’s not part of the stacked mess on my desk. This is a good idea. he could get it a patent and get it developed as an app. People would buy it. He might not even have to develop it, the website would be a good enough test market and license it to some techy company that does that thing. should do it quick or someone will steal it and make the money off of it. I hope he reads this.

    Would be a great app I would pay for. For now I’ll visit your website

  7. David Haynes on March 14, 2019 at 8:46 pm

    It looks easy-I have subscribed and will try it. Thank you.

  8. Ulla Oudrup on March 14, 2019 at 8:47 pm

    Free or free for 7 days????

  9. Shahida Gul on March 14, 2019 at 8:47 pm

    Where is link to the free app

  10. ty eres on March 14, 2019 at 8:50 pm

    I’d download it immediately if i weren’t so inconsistent/lazy xD

  11. Alan Phillips on March 14, 2019 at 8:54 pm

    The software is well worth subscribing to for any allotmenteer or vegetable gardener, although the login and response time can be cumbersome.
    The videos are an ideal length but I could not find a simple way to post a comment on the creating a bean teepee.Here I would add,always wear thick gloves when pushing in bamboo stakes, otherwise you can get a terrible bamboo splinter across you hand that may require hospital treatment.

  12. Trish Ricklefsen on March 14, 2019 at 8:54 pm

    What is the name of the app? I don’t see it in the AppStore.

  13. Benja's Uber 1337 Hobby on March 14, 2019 at 8:55 pm

    I am quite confused. Is the website free but then I have to pay for the app? Have you not updated the website to give me the right link for the free garden journal app. Or is the app not free?

  14. Robbie Summerour on March 14, 2019 at 8:58 pm

    This is great!..The record keeping is easy, and I can use it thru a browser on my Android. Thank you.

  15. Beaguins on March 14, 2019 at 9:00 pm

    The journal seems like too much work. The online planner is enough for me.

  16. Ken Shaw on March 14, 2019 at 9:01 pm

    Bravo! This will be invaluable!

  17. D Abernathy on March 14, 2019 at 9:01 pm

    Am I missing something? I use both the Garden Planner and the Journal, love ’em both, buuuut, I am unable to bring the Journal to my Android based phone, had the same problem with my Android based tablet. However with the tablet I simply used another friendlier one (ASUS). I would like to use my smart phone, any ideas.

  19. Enrika Pacesaite on March 14, 2019 at 9:02 pm

    I think I already love it 🙂 I’ve been waiting for it for a long time… Congratulations! Eager to explore all the features. I hope to see some statistic based on a plant during the year and some other graphs 🙂

  20. lane laney on March 14, 2019 at 9:03 pm

    This is one of the best ideas I’ve heard in quit awhile! Well done.

  21. Sandra T on March 14, 2019 at 9:03 pm

    you guys are genius, thank you!!!!

  22. Pia Beier on March 14, 2019 at 9:04 pm

    Hi 🙂 thank you four your nice video’s
    I hope you got the time to answer my question. I have some problems with my transplants. The look good in the box but wen I put them ind to the garden they just dies? So what am I doing wrong?
    It’s different plants. I transplanted butternut, they got white and died. Then Chard, they are just laying ther?
    I give water every night. Because the whether is weary warm and dry at this time. 24-30 degrees in the last 5-6weeks and no rain.
    I live in Sweden so sorry for my English 🙂

  23. Sandra Clark on March 14, 2019 at 9:07 pm

    Do you have to have a paid subscription to keep the journal entries? Or is it free after the 6 day trial?

  24. Vickie Butler on March 14, 2019 at 9:12 pm

    I can’t find the garden journal app. is there an exact name for it?

  25. Ian Berkley on March 14, 2019 at 9:15 pm

    Been looking for a Journal as I’m currently using Google Keep. Will give it a try, looks excellent 🙂 !

    Is there an app to go with this or do you need to log into the Journal via a web browser? Ta

  26. Tim Zebo on March 14, 2019 at 9:15 pm

    Thanks for creating The Garden Journal! It looks terrific, and I can’t wait to use it!

    Because I garden in three locations: Home Garden, Community Garden and Mom’s Garden, I’d love to be able to document results in three separate Journals. Can you add that as a possible new feature? When do you think it might be available?

  27. elenasym10 on March 14, 2019 at 9:16 pm

    Thanks for this addition to the already useful Garden Planner (I am a subscriber)! I already started using the Journal and I would find it useful to have something like "Pest Control" added to the "Tending" category, so that I can add when I apply what to my garden.

  28. Steve Phenald on March 14, 2019 at 9:19 pm

    Awesome. Finally something I can use. Thanks

  29. Richard Parnell on March 14, 2019 at 9:20 pm

    Looks good, Is there going to be any integration between the planner and the journal.
    It would be great if your plan put a reminder in the journal

  30. Janet Johnson on March 14, 2019 at 9:20 pm

    The Garden Journal is free, but you have to subscribe to the Garden Planner (which is not free) in order to access the journal, correct?

  31. Mark Baker on March 14, 2019 at 9:21 pm

    Like others I’m confused…. I use the GardenPlanPro application on my iPad and iPhone and it looks like the journal functionality in those apps is very simple note taking which is not at all like the web browser based function shown in the video. Maybe you could update us on how to whether the new journal features described in the video apply to the GardenPlanPro application. Thanks!

  32. timbo1404 on March 14, 2019 at 9:24 pm

    I see how to get this Journal on my PC but agree with others with the confusion over the app for iphone (or android) – I searched on the app store and see nothing, so how do we get that please?

  33. Becky Harris on March 14, 2019 at 9:28 pm

    Wonderful! I’ve been using the garden planner for years. This is a fantastic additional tool – plus I love to take pics of my garden. Thank you.

  34. Sajad Ahmed on March 14, 2019 at 9:29 pm

    Its a good idea. Is it on appstore.

  35. Caleb Cologna on March 14, 2019 at 9:33 pm

    Glad I checked the description and comments before checking the app store. Not sure how much my feedback will aid but I’ll give it a fair shake and see what I can come back with. In fairness, I was first hoping for more of a gallery of pen & paper journaling structures because they’re only as involved as you want them and there’s no unwanted clutter but this seems promising.
