|NOTICE (12/14/2012): The 2013 Garden Calendar is now sold out! Watch this location for information on the 2014 Garden Calendar.|
For many years, UMass Extension has worked with the citizens of Massachusetts to help them make sound environmental choices about growing, planting, and maintaining plants in their landscapes, including vegetables, backyard fruits, and ornamental plants such as trees, shrubs, perennials, vines, annuals, and grasses.
Each year, the Garden Calendar presents a selection of plants chosen by the UMass Extension Landscape, Nursery & Urban Forestry staff for pest resistance, adaptability to specific growing environments, and seasonal effectiveness. A brief description accompanies each photo to help understand these plant choices. Furthermore, daily gardening tips provide information on garden pests and management strategies to help gardeners reduce pesticide usage. Also included are “how-to and when” tips such as dates to plant peas, renovate lawns, prune and fertilize roses, conserve water in the landscape, and many more.
