Let’s face it – there’s a lot to do in the garden. Whether it’s cutting back plants in the fall, starting vegetable seeds indoors in the winter, or deadheading in the summer, it can be hard to remember what to do when. We’re here to help with a monthly gardening checklist that can keep you organized throughout the year.
Review your garden notes from last season. Read our blog for tips on taking good garden notes.
Browse through your favorite gardening websites, seed catalogs and Pinterest, taking note of varieties you want to plant in the spring.
Make a list of materials and tools you will need to purchase for spring, such as containers, tomato cages, twine and more. This is also the perfect time to set your budget for materials for the season.
Start annual Spring-Planted Bulbs indoors for earlier blooms, transplanting once the chance of frost has past.
