Two of the most important aspects of gardening are knowing when to plant and what to plant in your vegetable or flower garden. However, it can be difficult to know the exact time to begin planting in order for a garden to fully flourish throughout the growing season. If your plant or garden fails to thrive, simply adjusting your planting time frame might make a big difference. A planting calendar takes the guesswork out of the process.
A planting calendar is a simple guide that tells when the
optimal time to plant any type of vegetable, flower or plant is.
How does it work?
Planting calendars are designed to calculate the best time
to start seeds and plant a garden. Timing for all planting is based on first
and last frost dates. For example, if planting in hardiness zone 5, the last
frost date is generally between April 1st – April 15th, and the first frost
date typically falls between October 16th – October 31st. These dates will in
part dictate when the best time to plant is.
From specific plants and vegetables that thrive in one
particular zone, to when to plant, to how much water they need, to when to
harvest, the Gilmour Planting Calendar provides everything you need to know to
grow a bountiful garden.
