If you have square or rectangular beds you can think of the positions as
"Rows and Columns". I mark mine in one foot increments. In one direction
I use numbers, and and in the other le)tters. So my designations look
LB 10C (left bed, row 10 column C)
I print my tags from my data base so I tend to have a lot of info on
Garden location Code
Where I got it
All on a 1 1/2" by 5 1/2" Vinyl paper tag that I hang on a marker next
to each plant. Additionally, I color code my tags by type. This way I
can look at the plant and compare it with the tag, see how it is
growing, start recognizing the look of the hybridizer, and know that it
is not misnamed.
Probably excessive, but what can you say about an analytic. :>)))
