At the beginning of March (every year) I put my gardening notebook on the bench in the potting shed with a pen to write in what i have sown and when and to make a note of jobs I need to do later in the year and put planting suggestions in for next year.
Every October I remove said notebook to the house with (if I'm lucky) maybe 1 solitary entry...
The nearest I come to proper organisation is a tin with the seed packets in and markers (ie bits of torn off cardboard) reading 'Done' 'Repeat' 'Outside' 'Not This Year'. First and last are self explanatory - 'Repeat' means a form of successional sowing (sometimes it gets done sometimes not) and 'Outside' means sow these where they are to flower when the weeds start germinating.
Otherwise I garden exactly like Joyce . I also do a big hack back at the time of the Hampton Court Show to make room for summer stuff.
