Holiday gift idea for gardeners

Can’t decide what to buy the gardener in your life this holiday season? While every true gardener would appreciate a houseplant or another book about growing the biggest tomatoes possible, why not try something a different this year? Get your plant fanatic a garden journal.

Garden journals are actually a very important part of organic gardening. It’s important to keep track of diseases, insect infestations and soil conditions. It’s also a handy place to keep a list of plant varieties that were a hit, and a list of those to avoid at all costs.

Some journals are fancier than others. Go for one that includes graph paper to map out rotation plans, picture holders, and pouches for plant tags. Check out Borders for the best garden journals. Your gardener will be able to use your gift right away because it’s never too early to start planning next season’s fun.
