Spreading the love with spreadsheets? Don’t you know it!

Spreadin the love

I shared a quick video on Instagram stories the other day of me scrolling through my spreadsheet that contains the names, dates, places, and more info about each plant I bring home. Turns out a lot of you also have your own spreadsheets working! Others were interested in starting one of their own, so I’ve made a blank public copy of mine to share with y’all.

Instructions:
It’s linked via Google Docs here.
All you have to do is open the link then click ‘File’ > ‘Make a Copy.’
This will save it to your own Gmail/Drive account.
You can also download it as an Excel file, etc. (‘File’ > ‘Download as’ …)

I refer back to this sheet daily to recall the name of a plant or the date or location I got it. I also include links to online resources about each plant and try to keep up with the rest of the data entry – Sun requirements, bloom time, hardiness, et al. You should add and remove columns from your copy to tailor it to your needs and start entering your collection!
