Come over to CPUK, register and then post a thread in the growlist section. There's no problem and it will only take you a tick.
Out of interest, are people wanting to have a dedicated section here at Terraforums for growlists?
I would! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]
Well, Several friends and relatives of mine in the UK found that site for me and they pointed out that there were grow lists posted there. *I have thought about registering at this other site and I'm thinking I am comfortable here where I am and besides which... my grow list has less than 10 items on it. *No need embarrassing myself in two places ;)
As far as the software, I would like it to be simple to use yet capable of warehousing whatever the school has going on. *I will probably purchase software that I can share with the school. *For me, I'd just like to keep track of what I get and where it comes from and where I plant it and if it lives or dies. Being able to note when I started germinating a particular seed would be very nice.
Hi Patch! You stated this-
"for your comp is easy.. vb.net, a little programming and one can be made for you.
but for website.. you either have someone maintain it for you, you maintain it, or gain access to a host and just edit it when you can.
if you are looking for a simply page that lists your plants, i can host one for ya. *but giving you access to the list is the issue, cause then you have access to my other folders"
Hmmm, vb.net and a little programming... oh help me here Patch as I'm about to drown in computer language. *Please understand that not all that long ago "web sites" were something I found underneth my stairs down to the basement and a feather duster took care of those quite nicely. *I appreciate your offer but I am in way over my head when it comes to computer anything other than software that I purchased and use every day which somebody had to hold my hand to teach me how to use. *I do appreciate your offer but I don't want access to anyone's folders.
Let's see what my girlfriend's husband comes up with for me in the next week. He said he'd come up with something for me. *Gosh Patch, thanks so much for the offer though. *That was really sweet.
Oh my gosh, I missed what Alvin Meister asked. Yes, I would like a dedicated section here at Terraforums for growlists. I could edit that myself and I wouldn't need to bother my girlfriend's husband every time I bought a plant.

You might consider combining the smallest of use from the Non-Carnivorous Plant categories as well as what Phil had suggested several months ago - combining the Fresh & Salt Water forums, to make a little room on the home page.
Laura, actually a file in word or similar program works quite weel for a notepad to keep track of the info you want. ive tried it and it works but im to lazy to do it so i write the plant name, date i recieved or sown seeds and who i got it from on MOST of my plant tags. i havent done it all on some but name and date is on all. this did lead to a bit of confusion last week as the name on the tag of a ping hybrid i have wasnt who i got the plant from because i put the originater of the cross down and not the person i recieved it from as that info was given to me with the plant. as to the growlist problem. just join the CPUK forums. very lil goes on over there that i keep track off but its an extra referance for Utrics as there are a few dedicated "lil pots of moss" growers over there that dont frequent here. i throw my 2 cents in once every week or two is all normally.
I'll bring up the issue of growlists here on TF.
There is probably a dedicated piece of software for general hortculture, with features like sowing dates. Looking on Google would probably bring something up. Something mundane like Excel or Word could also be used.
Thank you for moving this to General Discussions as I still need help with software selection. The results of my Yahoo/Google search are posted back a little bit. *Slim pickings. *I must be missing good software. *
About a grow list for me...
Ta Da! * * http://www.geocities.com/dkurtz60084/laurab.html
I have the passwords and all but have no idea how to remove or add from the website that was created for me. I am somewhat dependent on my girlfriend's husband but he is such a good sport and doesn't mind at all. *I think I would like to see a grow list forum here if at all possible. *
Hi Rattler, several small flies in the ointment. I have no idea how to use Excel. I can use Word but that's about it. *Next little issue... I used to use surveying flags in assorted colors to denote the locations of native plants. On the flags was written the binomial, date planted, source and other pertinent information. *This system worked just fine for me UNTIL my youngest went and surprised me last May and gathered several hundred of my surveying flags to present to me as a "flag arrangement" as opposed to a "floral arrangement" for Mother's Day. I think I all but passed out as I was so overwhelmed with joy that I had to go inside to lay down. *Little boys have their hearts in the right places but they certainly do think bizarre thoughts and they often put them into action. *I had a spiral notebook but somehow it was taken to school and the pages I had used were ripped out and discarded. When I finally recovered my notebook, it had super hero drawings in it and other doodles. *I had a file of over 500 photos of plants and where they were located on the property saved to a file on my desktop. *That was until my 4th grader had a need to print out photos of trees to go along with leaves he had collected for a science project. *He systematically deleted every photo that did not contain him, how vain. *Wasn't that special? *I had a box that had a big black skull and cross bones drawn on the cover that contained plant tags, receipts, and other notes from the past 5 years. *My wonderful husband said he threw it out because it looked like garbage and had a layer of dust on it. *The only thing in the garage that was mine and he tossed it. *Imagine that! *Another time I had to reserve comment in favor of going inside to lay down and that time I sure could have used a tranquilizer. *I am thinking I have a need for "a dedicated piece of software for general hortculture with features like sowing dates" as suggested by Alvin Meister that I can install on this computer that is now pass word protected.
Sounds like the need for a footlocker anchored in concrete and locked securely with chains and padlocks.
