It’s about that time of year again when we have to start planning our gardens and figuring just what we plan to plant.
Instead of re-hashing what we covered last year, we figured we’d just give you a few links to our 2009 gardening series. It covered all the main topics and ideas for planting flowers, herbs, and vegetables both from seeds and bulbs/plants.
If you haven’t done so already, be sure to request a free catalog from Nature Hills. Sometimes the best ideas for what to plant come from just browsing a catalog! Plus of course they have some really interesting plants and seeds for sale, so do check them out after you request a catalog.
To start the series, we started with the obvious – planting seeds inside. This included flowers, vegetables, and herbs. Generally on spring break is when we start planning our garden, and planting all our seeds inside. Mid to late March, basically. Sometimes we hold off until April if it’s been a pretty ugly winter and we know we won’t see our garden under all the snow until late May.
To finish up the series, we covered some information on flower bulbs and vegetable plants. These of course you’ll hold off on until late spring when all the threat of frost is gone. Although flower bulbs can also be planted in late fall, but if your doing your garden in the spring, best to wait until frost has past.
