I make a mental note of what works where and why, what situations different species prefer in terms of sun/shade ,acid/alkaline, dry,moist or wet etc. I often think it might help to write it down but never seem to get round to doing that.
I love the chaos of nature so regimentation is usually absent from anything but do like rough grouping of species together.
The experience of other gardeners here has helped me make many a decision and you make a valid point herbaceous as to interaction...gardening can be a solitary pursuit but so many good people on these boards make it less so.
