Entries comprise Bed 10924 to Bed 13748. Information is recorded mostly in pencil, in G.F. Wilson's hand. Approximately 10 to 14 entries per page. The date is recorded as a heading, and each entry comprises a running bed number, the name or variety of plant, and occasional notes, eg 'Douglas' and 'One of these taken for Leichtlin'
Bed numbers from the planting volumes are occasionally included in the Oakwood garden journals, 1888-1902, ref RHS/WY/Owd/1/1-14, to indicate plants in bloom in the garden
