I started just such a spreadsheet a few years ago and then realised I didn't have half the labels anymore, some have died in the face of severe winters, others have returned after 2 years of playing dead. Gave up.
Did the same one year with sowings - what, when, germination date etc - but that's fine in March when it's still frozen outside and there's not a lot else to do but hopeless once spring arrives in a whoosh in April and there's no time for anything but weeding, feeding, pruning, lifting and dividing, potting on and so on.
No time in the evenings as I'm out dancing or running dance classes and on rainy days there's all that housework and other domestic projects.
Other than that, I have a mental list of all the things I need to do. Daren't put it on paper as I'd frighten myself - and OH!
