Have you ever wanted a friend or coach to help you with your garden? Someone just to tell you what to do each month to keep your shrubs, lawn, trees and perennials thriving?
This monthly action guide will help you know what to plant, when to fertilize, what to prune and how to maintain your garden. If you love annuals to spruce up your garden, this guide will help you to choose them using perfect timing. Are you cultivating a vegetable garden? This guide will help you select vegetables to plant at the right time and tell you how to care for them.
This guide is the result of my over 30 years as a landscape architect designing gardens for my clients. If my clients didn't know how to care for plants, my designs wouldn't hold up over the years so out of necessity I created this garden guide to assist people in caring for their gardens. This first guide is designed for people in the Southern part of United States but it offers information useful to all gardeners.
This guide is geared to Southern United States gardens. It is designed for people that want to know how manage, plant, fertilize and prune annuals, perennials, lawn, shrubs, trees and vegetables. Whether you have a raised bed, potted plants or in ground plant this guide will help you care for your garden and landscape.
