Make Your Own Garden Book Printables

Thornless Blackberry Printable Pages

Last month I shared, The New Garden Planner that inspires making your own garden book.  It didn’t seem right to just stop with the planner and I’ll tell you why…

I can’t express how many times I put aside writing my first Garden Book, as a matter of fact Startle Garden almost didn’t happen because I remember thinking, “what the world really needs is another gardening book” said with sarcasm…  I would only consider writing one if it was unique from all the rest and thankfully I was able to achieve that.  Startle Garden can be found here. 

After publishing the planner, I started thinking about my original thought, “What the world needs is another gardening book.”  Shortly after that I focused my attention on ways to expand the make your own Garden Book concept beyond seasonal planning.

This took my attention towards writing topic packets that are easy to use and visually appealing using my images.  Each packet needed to be simplified, basically without a lot of fluff and no fancy words.  So, guess what happened next?

After I published the Garden Planner I started working on a template for specific garden topics, then I began writing and my excitement grew. The inventory also started growing and I immediately uploaded each one as they were finished into the shop.  The best part of the entire process I’m offering these PDF’s at an affordable price of $1.00 – that’s right 5 pages for one low price.  To check out the current inventory visit here. 

These individual packets can be inserted into a three-ring binder using hole punches or just slip into a plastic cover for protection.  I really like the slip covers and I also recommend printing on a high quality card stock.  These materials can be found at any office supply store.

Here’s the best part, I have a comfortable list of titles to work from and some of these packets will be project related which is even more exciting.  But here’s the thing I want to know what topics are of interest to you? So please leave a comment below with your thoughts or send me an email to

If a suggested idea is chosen for inventory that person will receive that printable free once it’s published.  That person will also receive an email confirmation and a date for publication.  All other inquiries will be ignored unfortunately to keep from creating any confusion.  Please don’t let that keep you from sending in your ideas because I read every single one.

I hope you’re all excited about this as much as I am and for those of you who already purchased the planner pages -THANK YOU!  It’s my hope they’ve been a huge help to organizing your gardening information.

Thank you all for being a part of Garden Up Green!

    Hi Carole,

    This is a great idea. Being organized really helps with success in any project. So affordable too. My suggestion would be to create one for a beginning flower gardener perhaps on your zinnias to help them learn how to garden with an easy flower to grow.

      Hello Patti – I’ve been outside finishing up a chicken coop project this morning… Trying to beat that humidity…. Great idea for the zinnias – I get that added to the list and send you an email when published with your free printable idea. Thanks for sharing! Carole

      Mickie – that’s a great idea! I’ve got a lot on my plate at the moment but let me ponder this for the next couple of weeks and see what I can come up with. You might be onto something there.. I’ve framed a few of just our farm animals and I have to say I’ve really enjoyed those over the years. Thanks for sharing!!
