It feels like Spring is finally on its way and the sunshine is beaming down on the mangetout and leek seedlings that line our windowsills.
Anyone who follows me knows that I’m a bit of a list maker (I’ve shared many of my templates on this bullet journal printables page).
So, when I watched a video made by local gardener and author Huw Richards I knew that I had to adapt the way we’d been planning our raised beds.
The Benefits of Using Monthly Garden Planning Pages
Creating a monthly garden plan is a really sensible way of keeping track of everything that needs doing on your allotment.
I’d advise watching Huw’s video (link below) before pressing print as he explains everything you need to know about planning your garden by month.
But we’ve already noticed many benefits to planning in this way:
- Garden planning is something enjoyable to do on a cold winter evening when you’re missing pottering about in the garden.
- It stops all those little tasks becoming overwhelming and helps create focus…especially during busy months.
- Helps you to feel in control as your growing space expands (we’ve added 4 new raised beds this year!)
- It’s perfect if you like visual plans as you can actually see how things will move around as the growing season progresses.
- Helps you to remember those important tasks like sowing successions that will mean you have a supply of fresh veggies for longer.
- You can easily see (and fill) empty spaces.
- Who doesn’t love a plan?!
Here’s Huw explaining the monthly garden planning system…

Once you’ve printed your plan take some time to plan your garden template. (Ours is easy as our raised beds are all the same size).
Always use pencil to add any specific planting details as that way you can alter things easily if you need to.
If you have a big garden then you could use one sheet per section of garden or print the PDF on A3 paper to allow you more space.
Remember to take a look at all of my other free bullet journal planning pages…there are a few other gardening ones.
I’d love to hear what you think of these monthly garden planning pages…please share with your green-fingered friends too!
