If you haven't heard about Plantstep software for keeping track of your daylilies and making a catalog, you might want to check it out. I've never had a database for my daylilies, but now that I'm getting older I have trouble remembering the names of all 650 of my daylilies. This software makes it a breeze to quickly put together a database and add pictures. You just click on the cultivars you have, and the program automatically adds all the stats for you. And with the one-time cost of the program, you can post your catalog online. The Plantstep catalog is a great place to shop for reasonably priced daylilies too. There are lots of folks with catalogs there from whom I've bought in the past. Jordan's Daylilies, Patricia Ball, Robert O'Neal and Dragon Meade (Packrat on the Lily Auction) are some I recommend.

Here's my catalog I created in just a couple of days:

Debra: A neat idea. I sent it to a Rose friend of mine who is a big grower and wanted a spreadsheet type record for herself. She's a Mac user so don't know if it would work for her, but it's interesting none the less.......I like the way it looks too. Easy to read. Some websites are such a mess that ordering is a chore at best....Is this the first year you've tried it? Was it easy to fill in? ............Maryl

Maryl - Yes, I've only had the program for about two weeks now. It was super easy to use. If you do have a question, the program developers get back to you very quickly with answers. I used to be able to remember the names and where all my daylilies were planted without a database. But as I get older, I'm finding I get more forgetful. That's why I decided to get the program. And when I found out putting the catalog online was free with the low cost of the program - $29.00 - I decided that was a good deal.

I was looking at this program some time ago and for some reason thought it's more for hybridizers. Right now my Excel spreadsheet is enough for me, but this looks like a neat thing.
Btw, at first I tried googling the link and it took me to your ATP thread :)

Here's the hotlink. It should take you to my catalog, and you can access the others and info about the software from there.

RE: Plantstep Flower Software

Is this helpful software if you aren't planning to sell plants? I bought some software a few years ago and then my computer died and I never retrieved the software. I'm looking for a personal database that lets me indicate where plants are located in the garden, and I wasn't sure if this software allows you to track that.

I'm assuming you upload your own photos? Your catalog looks beautiful.

I've had PlantStep for about 3 years now. I love it. I don't post my catalog as this is just for my own "get organized" and "keep track" requirement and also to check who I bought certain plants from, pricing, etc. I like the hybridizing feature as well.

I think the pricing is very reasonable for what it can do. JMO.

Chris - I think its a great personal database for you plants. It has a place where you can designate what bed a daylily is in. I haven't used that part of the program yet.

Julia - I do like that it has a place to put where you bought the daylily. That's always helpful info if the plant turns out not to be the one you ordered.

Hmm, I'll have to check it out. Right now I have 800+ roses and a couple hundred daylilies kept on excel sheets...where of course I have to key all the info myself. Might be worth looking into.
