Introduction

When planning what to grow at home and on my allotment, I found myself going through the same process every year:

  • Listing out what I wanted to grow
  • Searching my collection of seed packets to remember names of varieties
  • Looking at seed catalogues and online seed retailers for ideas
  • Sketching a layout, and trying to remember where I grew vegetables the year before to change positions
  • Creating a list of all the jobs that needed doing at the start of the year

It was a lengthy process, which would have been made much easier if I had written more things down. Some years I skipped the planning process simply because I didn't enjoy doing it, with the result that throughout spring and summer I felt I was always playing ‘catch up’ with the garden, and wishing I had done things earlier.

I thought there must be a better way, and that is why I have created the tools on this website. To save time, avoid doing unnecessary work, and have everything I need in one place. These tools help me, and I hope you will find these helpful too.

Wishing you the best of luck in your growing!
