UMass Extension's 2013 Garden Calendar Now Available
University of Massachusetts Extension's popular Garden Calendar for 2013 is now available.
The 2013 calendar continues UMass Extension's tradition of providing gardeners with useful information including tips for creating colorful container gardens, and helpful "recipes" of plant combination ideas for sun and shade.
As in previous calendars, daily gardening tips for Northeast growing conditions provide information on garden pests and management strategies to help gardeners reduce pesticide usage as well as "how-to and when" tips such as dates to plant specific crops, renovate lawns, prune and fertilize roses, conserve water in the landscape, and many more.
Also included are daily sunrise and sunset times as well as the phases of the moon. There is plenty of room for notes, and low-gloss paper was used for easy writing.
