Plant Tracker – How I Keep Track of My Flowers and Plants

If you love to keep track of your plants, landscaping, or gardening, this database in Airtable is the answer!

I’ve always had a fancy for flowers. From a young girl helping Nana plant her petunias to now spending a Friday morning at the garden store buying way too many flowers, it’s quite the hobby.

It only made sense to keep a list of all the plants and flowers I planted. I wanted to track several other pieces of information like a picture of the actual plant, when I planted it, where I planted it, whether it was a perennial or annual, a watering schedule, and more.

Being a techie and “software connoisseur”, I began searching for an app and stumbled upon Airtable, a relational database that looks like a spreadsheet. It was love at first sight.

(And I’ve now written tons of articles about Airtable and third-party integrated apps)

Airtable lets you customize your own database. You can use it for anything you want to track. Maybe you want to keep a running list of books you read or articles you write for your website. Airtable does it all.
