Do you use a computer for gardening help?

Do you use a computer for gardening help?

Many activities are easier, quicker, and more efficiently done by computer. But can a computer streamline your garden planning and maintenance? We know of one home gardener in Eugene, Oregon, who keeps records of more than 1,800 plants, including planting dates and bloom periods, on her home computer.

If you use a computer to simplify your gardening, we'd like to know about it. Do you use it to keep garden records? Have you bought special software for plant selection or landscaping, and, if so, where did you buy it? Are you happy with how the program works? Did you develop your own program? Have you ever gotten gardening or plant information from an external data base? If so, which one? What computer do you use?

Let us know what has--and hasn't-- worked for you. Write to Computer Report, Sunset Magazine, 80 Willow Rd., Menlo Park, Calif. 94025.
