Help Needed for Gardening Planner

I'm looking to create a board(s) to help me manage my garden. I'm not sure whether to use 1 board for everything or several boards linked together. The main things I need are:

  • A calendar to remind me of what needs to be done each month. For example, at the moment I just have 1 board (as in the screenshot).
  • Screenshot 2020-08-10 20.35.36.png
  • A visual display of the plants in my garden. At the moment I am just taking photos of them all but it would be good to have something that I can add information about each plant such as preferred growing conditions.
  • Something to act as a an area for planning development of the garden, such as ideas for next year, things to make etc.

Hi Jeremy. I'm looking to do exactly the same as you and use Trello for managing gardening tasks. I started looking at one list per month  with labels for different parts of the garden. But whatever way I do it doesn't quite work. I was wondering what solution you went with in the end? Thanks

Hi Jeremy, I've never created a Trello board for gardening plans but I think that a single board would make things more manageable.

I've jotted down some ideas, not sure if they can be useful for you or not:

  • The first list of the board can be used as a place to gather ideas and info
  • Create a list for each season (instead of a list for each month) and use labels for months
  • Create a card for each plant with a photo as a cover
  • Use additional labels for more info about the plants
  • Use the Calendar Power-Up

Thanks Alice. Overall this seems a great idea, except that there are 12 months in a year and only 10 label colours. Maybe it would work if I had 1 colour for each season, eg. green for summer (June, July and August) etc. (That’s using Meteorological seasons)

I’ll give it a try but thinking it through, each plant would then have to go in a certain season whereas some plants span several seasons in terms of flowering, things to do etc. 

 I’m thinking it might work by creating a separate board called Plants as a database for all my plants and then somehow link to each plant from another board called Seasons 🤔🤔🤔

Sounds like a good idea. Here is an article about Using Multiple Trello Boards for a Super-Flexible Workflow, maybe it can be helpful.
