Gardening calendar is available

— Planning and developing a garden requires decisions — from what to plant to when to plant it. Gardening experts at West Virginia University Extension Service designed the 2013 WVU Extension Service Garden Calendar with this in mind.

The free calendar is available at all county WVU Extension Service offices or  downloaded at www.ext.

The calendar features short articles on gardening to help the readers enhance their skill and learn a variety of growing options. Gardeners will learn how to select proper tools, control insects, cover crops and more.

The monthly calendar and gardening guide offers information helpful to both beginning and avid gardeners. The calendar provides day-to-day planting and harvesting reminders for the entire year. Daily tips range from when to design your garden layout to when to prune bushes and turn compost.
