Probably one of the best pieces of advice to anyone. Draw a map
(preferably as you put each one in the ground). Whether you do it by
hand only or transfer it to computer later, it will save you endless
"gee I wish I could remember what that iris is" moments. Plus, if you
want to trade with someone, most like to know what they are getting.
Maps have saved me several times.
