How to have year-round colour in your garden

She has gardened extensively in both states. While in New Hampshire, she generated a website, which soon became a blog, answering gardening questions, on-line, for many years. This book was inspired by that blog. It appeared that many gardeners benefited from the gardening calendar, and were interested, as well as engaged, by personal stories from her own gardening experiences. To clarify some gardening terms, the book also includes a very simple, and basic glossary, intended for the benefit of beginning gardeners. Would you like to tell us about a lower price?

A year in my garden

To get a garden that really looks good all year round a little planning is needed. The key steps are to take control of the garden, put in structure and then fill it up with flowering plants. There will always be a high and a low season in the garden but it should never look completely devoid of colour. From snowdrops in February to crocuses in March, tulips in April and May to alliums in June, these provide a series of flowers. Buy in bulk to provide a good display.

So far our raised bed is working out wonderfully and the cage I built around it has kept all the animals out as well. It also helps to break the life cycle of the pests in that area, so it helps cut down on bug infestations as well. Learn when to harvest: When you are a newbie gardener, it can be really hard to know when a plant is ready to harvest. And that can let you know how big they got or what color they were before they started to go bad. And asking for local help is even better. I also thought my plants were diseased at times but they told me the plant was just done for the season, and I could take them out and start something else there instead.
