In addition to Jane's fields, I use these:

seed data:

source (including seed exchange, seed donor and collection data)
number of seeds (I count up to about 50, after that it's "lots")

comments (if they're distinctive - eg I just sowed two species of 
Watsonia, with seeds like the little chips of wood you get when you 
sharpen a pencil with a knife - one pink, one lavender)

treatment (soaking, temperature regimes, smoke etc)
date sown
date germinated

foliage dates

I change the font for plants I want but don't have yet

refererence (who inspired my desire -lecturer, book, someone's pbs 
posting,website etc)

Not done yet but soon I hope: maps.  My garden map book is falling 
apart so I am going to do the replacement on the computer.  Then I'll 
have all beds numbered instead of my current descriptions, eg 
"between leaning arbutus and Rhodo macabeanum".
