Salvia Small Talk: Excel in the Garden
For those who love the power of Microsoft Excel to record and sort information, a spreadsheet may be a useful tool for tracking plantings of Salvias and their landscape partners. You can think of any number of useful categories for your spreadsheet, including common and botanical names, planting dates and locations and observations about whether sunlight and moisture are sufficient or over-abundant. The categories and coding are up to you.
We like to give credit where credit is due: This bright idea came from mathematician, engineer and urban homesteader Laurie Neverman of the Common Sense Home website.
