I keep two paper journals/diaries on a daily basis. I was given a RHS 5 Year Diary 5 years ago and found it invaluable to record weather, tasks to do and flowers in bloom so have just bought myself another one.
I also keep just an A4 notebook where I record in more detail what I've done in the garden each day (if I did!) what I've planted and where I put it, design details and task/reminder jobs to do.
As an aside, somebody on the Forum mentioned labelling the other day, I've just had the new Suttons Catalogue today and their Clearance sale booklet has the very good Brother Garden Label machine for only £12.99 - and I paid nearly £40 for mine a few years ago! I have found this the most longlasting labelling system, pretty nearly weatherproof, although the replacement tapes are expensive at just under £14 each inc. P & P.
