(This planner was originally published on The Artisan Life, my planners and printables site. Thank you to concerned readers who’ve messaged to let me know the planner is the same. )
This planner is as functional as it is pretty. I’ve noticed that planting planners are frequently either functional (but unattractive and unappealing to use) or frilly without much substance. I hope this planner fills the gap so you can have a garden binder that’s a joy to look at and a helpful planning tool and record.

How to print your garden planner
These pages are a joy to print and use. They have carefully designed margins to ensure they are printer friendly. You won’t have anything important missing after you print and hole punch for your garden binder!
For best results, print on 32 lb paper. This paper is brighter and thicker than “normal” printer paper. This means your pages look inviting and beautiful, plus they hold up better to repeated use. For a side-by-side comparison of several popular papers and cardstocks, check out this post on The Artisan Life on the best paper for planner printables.

- Heavyweight premium printing: HP Premium32 is a heavyweight (32 pounds), brighter (100 bright) and whiter (163 whiteness) paper with a super-smooth...
- Certified sustainable: HP Premium32 presentation paper is Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certified and contributes toward satisfying credit MR1...
I recommend printing these letter sized pages at 100% and placing them in a 3 ring binder. Record keeping is key to having a garden that keeps getting better, year after year. You may think you’ll remember which varieties you liked and which you didn’t or which pest control methods worked best, but you probably won’t. I know I never actually do! That’s why a written record is invaluable.
I recommend using a clear view binder because this set of printables comes with a lovely front cover page. There are two different cover pages with different skin tones.
You may also want tab dividers to separate your months and seasons. Make sure to add a few heavy duty page protectors, too, so you can keep your empty seed packets!
The last step for using your garden planner is, of course, actually printing and using it. Print it as soon as possible so it doesn’t sit on your hard drive gathering virtual dust bunnies!

Thank you so much it’s a gorgeous layout many blessings
So, I was thinking I would pay a little something to support the work that went into putting it together and I believe a person deserves to be paid for their work. But, my curiosity grabbed hold and I clicked the button to put it in the cart without an amount and, guess what? Free is apparently not free. I can’t get it for free. With only 1 review, I’m skeptical and I’m not about to provide an unknown website with my financial information.
I’m sorry you had trouble with the GumRoad widget! You can absolutely, definitely get it for free by simply putting 0 in the amount box.
I’m attaching a screenshot of the checkout page so you can see the $0 amount and for reference in case anyone else has a problem. The $3 suggestion you saw is the default GumRoad provides, not a minimum amount you have to pay.
