This is very easy to do with any commercially available consumer database.
Access should do the job just fine. I have had mine in Lotus Approach for
years now.

Decide in advance which pieces of information you wish to record for each
plant. I would suggest at a minimum you have your daughter build it with
these fields:

Accession number (must be unique)
Date accessed
Plant family
Where you got it
Your price
Notes field
