Northwest gardeners now have a handy new tool for maintaining and improving their garden throughout the year. Gardening Month by Month in Washington and Oregon combines the features of an almanac and a gardening journal. Twelve pages are dedicated to each month of the year. Beautiful full-color photographs and helpful hints specifically geared to the diverse growing conditions of the Northwest provide both inspiration and a practical garden planner. A calendar format allows you to keep your own notes on such variables as weather, insect and disease appearances and treatments, as well as garden highlights. The practical stay-flat binding makes it easy to write your notes while at work in the garden.
Information covers starting plants from seed, creating wildlife habitat, lawn maintenance, plant propagation, houseplant care, container gardening, gardening planning and design ideas, first and last frost date maps, charts on climate normals and extremes, as well as a list of books, clubs and online resources for Northwest gardeners.
