Map your Garden
Before you forget where you put new plants this year, map your garden. Do it by sections if your garden is large. Make it easy on yourself by giving parts of the garden names: ‘right of the front door’, or ‘near the Cornus florida’ to designate spaces. Next spring, your map will make it easier to figure out which returning perennial is which. Also do a sketch of your vegetable garden so that next spring you don’t put the tomatoes or peppers, lettuce or beets exactly where they were this year. Rotating planting areas helps to prevent a build-up of disease in the soil.
