Making Good Gardening ChoicesThe 2013 WVU Extension Service Garden Calendar features articles that will help guide gardeners through the many choices they must make to develop and maintain their gardens. You’ll find pointers and useful information that will help you know what to consider when making those decisions.
From the basics of choosing garden tools to the benefits of planting winter cover crops, these articles discuss many useful ideas. Also, each month of the calendar provides the perennially popular suggested dates for planting and carrying out other gardening activities.
A special note: This year the garden calendar is dedicated to Dr. John Jett, retired WVU Extension horticulture specialist. Don’t miss his tribute and John’s favorite horticulture tips located on the last inside page.
Any of our 55 WVU Extension Service county offices will be happy to provide you with more gardening information. Their phone numbers are listed on the inside back cover or you may find our county offices online.
