Harbor Garden Center
What is your gardening New Years’ resolution? You probably think about all the other things you can change in the New Year.Why not make a change or some changes in your gardening for 2018. Let me give you a few examples of things you can make a resolution to change in your gardening habits.
Make a resolution to never, ever, mound bark mulch up against the stem or the trunk of plants.
Make a resolution to learn to prune your plants or if you know how to prune your plants, to do so in a timely manner.
Resolve to never start your plants from seed, indoors, too early in the season. Most plants only need 8 to 10 weeks from the seed being planted until you put the plant outdoors. Vine types of plants, think squash or cucumbers, need only 4 weeks from planting the seed until they go in the garden.
Resolve to plant certain vegetable plants in your garden at the proper time. Did you know that the old saying is that you plant your peas in the garden on Saint Patrick’s Day? Of course, if there is 2 feet of snow on the ground, you can’t do this. However, there are many vegetables that need to grow in the cool weather of very early spring.
Resolve to keep up with applying fertilizer to your annual and perennial flowers and your vegetable plants.
Happy New Year!
