SPRING IS OFFICIALLY HERE
(AND IT WILL EVENTUALLY WARM UP)
Spring. It seemed like it would never come.
Before you know it, you'll be out in your garden marveling at
what is peaking out of the soil. Before you go
out digging, take a look
at your garden journal from last fall to remind
yourself of where to look for newly planted specimens or
of which plants
you wanted to divide and transplant.
If you didn't keep a garden journal, perhaps this
would be a good time to start.
Your garden journal is your personal document.
Record as little as what you
plant and when; or, record every detail, every activity you perform in your
garden - planting, pruning, transplanting, weeding, deadheading
and daily or seasonal details like temperature, rainfall and hours of sunlight. For those of you who are not
only avid gardeners but photographers as well, a popular use of a
garden journal is to keep digital photos of
your favourite plants and of your garden beds through each stage and
No matter what your style, a garden journal can add
to your gardening success and enhance your enjoyment of your gardening
activities year after year.
