I must agree with Sharron's vote for FileMaker Pro.  It's one of the
easiest database programs to use and customize for the new to intermediate
computer user.  I use it to keep track of both my irises and daylilies.
The file templates and report layouts can be shared with others.
Apparently, you wouldn't even have to re-invent the wheel to set up the
database - just get file templates from Sharron or me.  By the way it's
also cross-platform compatible with no conversion necessary between Mac and
PC versions.
