Creating unique notes for a plant or variety

Set a note for a specific instance of a plant on your plan (useful for Succession Planting)

Updated over a week ago

If you have more than one instance of a variety on your plan and want to add unique notes to each separate planting, you'll need to create a new variety for each instance of that plant (or row/block of plants) so they're listed individually on your Plant List.

Setting a unique variety

Double-click on the plant in your plan (or click once on the plant to highlight it then click on the Edit Item button in your plan's toolbar) to open the Edit Plant box.

Garden Planner settings

Click on Customize Varieties.
