Debit Square - For Gardens - A program for tracking plants and gardening.

Frequently Asked Questions 

I only have a few Garden Items  - is it something I can really use. Debit Square - For Gardens - Main Screen - click for a larger display

     Certainly. Track where your plants came from as well as when, the cost, when you last fertilized – you decide what you’d like to track! 

Track Growth, Watering, Cuttings, etc. Keep track of special moments such as when it bloomed the first time. Information will be stored for years - there is the real value in the program - the history you will have at your fingertips.

I run a small nursery. How can the Program help me?
     You can keep track of certain lines of plants/flower/trees you buy or grow and sell. Sales could reference back to a particular garden item. Using the advanced functions you could make multiple Garden Sets (Multiple files each containing a collection of Garden Items). You might use this for example if you had two nurseries or perhaps you wanted to keep some of your personal plants separate from the nursery’s plants. The flexibility is there for you. That’s the point.
I show my flowers. How can it help me?
     Track the shows that each flower has been in as well as awards won. Create reports on the history of that particular flower or all the flowers that you show.
I'm an experimental grower - can I use it?
     Sure - it would be great for that. Track the history of certain lines of your plants or flowers. Great for comparisons later as to what process worked best.
I don't understand the relationship of Activities and Garden Items.
     Each Garden Item has their own set of activities. Let's say that you have defined 3 Activities – Fertilizer, Growth and Pruning. Let's also say you have 2 Garden Items – Himalayan Fir -1 and Rosenshale - 1. In this case, then Himalayan Fir -1 has its own set of the 3 activities (Fertilizer, Growth and Pruning) and Rosenshale - 1 has its own set of the 3 activities (Fertilizer, Growth and Pruning). When you enter information in the Growth activity for example, you are either entering it for either Himalayan Fir -1 or Rosenshale - 1. If the currently selected Garden Item was Himalayan Fir -1 and the activity selected was Pruning, then it would show all of the Pruning for Himalayan Fir -1. Now switch to Rosenshale - 1 and choose Pruning to see all the Pruning for Rosenshale - 1. In either case if you want to add information, just make a new entry. It's very simple.
Oh, my - won't this require a lot of space?
     Space is determined by the amount of information you use, but after the initial installation (about 20 megabytes) incremental size requirements are very small. A typical Garden Set of 10-15 Garden Items might be 1 to 2 megabytes.
How are the Master List items different from the Garden Activities? They seem similar and I have trouble distinguishing between the two.

    Master List items relate to the current Garden Set and not to any particular Garden Item. They belong to all Garden Items in that Garden Set. By contrast Garden Activities belong to a particular Garden Item.
     Let's say that you have a Master List Item called Internet Links. In this list, you have the name of several web sites - ( Forestfarm, RJ's Plant Supply, etc). Since this is a Master List item it doesn't matter which Garden Item is the current one, the Internet Links always show the same web sites.
     Let's say you also had a Garden Activity named Internet Links. In this one, you would have the Links for web sites that apply only to the currently selected Garden Item - such as a web site that specializes in Weeping Junipers.
     In other words - does the information (Internet Links in this case) belong to the whole file (Master List Items) or to individual Garden Items (Garden Activities). This illustration uses Internet Links, but the same concept could apply to many other situations. Probably you have some special situation yourself. That's what is nice about Debit Square - For Gardens - you can customize it to suit your needs.

The picture of the program on the Debit Square - For Gardens - main web page shows a lot of screens open. That seems complicated.
    This is just for illustrative purposes. The picture on our web page and in the manual just shows most of the screens of the program open at once.  Normally, you'll just have one or two screens open at a time.
