How to create a garden diary out of a photo book Spiral

A photo book does not absolutely have to contain photos – you can also arrange it as a journal. As in the example of this garden diary, for example, which is made using a photo book Spiral. The practical spiral binding offers plenty of space for sticking in photos, notes, sketches and even dried petals. A beautiful reminder of a wonderful year in the garden – and a loving gift for all of those with green thumbs. With these ideas, you too can create a special diary for gardening enthusiasts.

Consider what headings and pages are musts for your garden diary. Those who love gardening often first like to sketch out what their green paradise is going to look like, in a garden plan. Where are the patches going to be, with useful plants, fruit and vegetables? Where is there space for decorative plants and shrubs? And how much space remains for the lawn or the climbing frame? Plan in at least one page where a garden plan can be drawn or stuck in.

Every gardener has wishes: What is the garden supposed to look like? What favourite flower always blooms especially beautifully? Where is your favourite place in the garden and what makes it special? What needs to be on the shopping list for the next visit to the market garden? Which fruits would be nicest? Which fruit would be the most delicious? And which varieties would it be better to do without next spring? Which formulas always produce a good yield from the garden? What is newly planted and what has perhaps fallen prey to the slugs or voles? Which animals do you regularly observe in the greenery? And what beginner’s mistakes absolutely must be avoided next year?

While designing the diary, allow your imagination free reign – and above all: Leave plenty of space on the pages for notes and ideas, one’s own experience and faux pas. The ifolor photo book Spiral is the ideal product for your garden diary: Thanks to its spiral binding it is especially robust. Because the outer pages are protected by transparent plastic, it can be safely taken out into the garden – drops of water and soil crumbs cannot harm the cover. The glossy inside pages are printed on 170 g/m² paper – and the different formats allow flexible design. Particularly nice: Thanks to the ring binding lots of personal and special things can also be stuck in – like pressed petals of a favourite plant. Design your very own individual herbarium, a blooming journal with lots of love and full of memories of a beautiful year in the garden.
