If you’re a seasoned gardener, you probably know exactly what’s in your garden, but I certainly don’t know what everything in mine is called. And how do you figure it out? There’s literally thousands of plants. They usually come from the garden centre with tags attached, but, by now, the writing on the tags is probably faded and the tags may even be lost.
