keeping track

with so many plants and cultivars
now on our growing list at the nursery
its started to be pretty important to
keep track of all the plants
on quieter days
when I have little hands helping,
labels are being written
in the sunshine in the garden
permanent ones to stay at the farm
and wooden biodegradable ones 
that leave with the plants

those little hands sometimes
also move the labels
a small price to pay when
you have the luxury of being able to work from home
so we have a special section in the nursery
called "scroggin"
a place with plants with mixed up labels
go to wait until they flower
and a label can be put back correctly


  1. I think I should be put in the scroggin place too till I flower!

  2. Laughing at what Tanya wrote....haha!! I think there's quite a few things 'laying around' I may now have a name for!

    I adore hand written tags poppped into little plant pots. I wish you could buy them like that everywhere!

  3. Oh so pretty. Have to be careful so as not to poison my Blossom ... she's an inside cat so she goes crazy at a whiff of anything green. My couple of hanging plants make me miss the real beauty ... love the 'scroggin' sounds like a treasure hunt :)
