When looking ahead to the coming year, gardeners sometimes first look back to notes they've made in a garden journal. These might include new plants to try, obscure heirloom varieties of tomatoes, intriguing color schemes, improvements to be made, shifts toward organic growing, and other "notes to self" are all examples. Other sources of inspiration are seed catalogs, the Proven Winners Gardeners' Idea Book, and suggestions by garden and landscape peers made via social media.
