GARDEN CENTER



January
Herbs growing on windowsills, as well as smaller houseplants, can benefit from spending a few months under artificial lights to supplement the diminished natural sunlight. Berthold’s sells a lighting system that can keep your plants going through the winter.
February

March
Think Spring and get out into your garden when the weather finally warms up!
April
Use Forsythia as a reminder for these April tasks.
May
Cautious gardeners often wait until Memorial Day before setting out cold-sensitive plants such as tomatoes, peppers, eggplants, and squash.
June
Check out our tips for General Garden Care, Tree & Shrub Car, Rose Care and Annuals & Perennials.
July
The wet spring we have experienced has made our gardens a haven for unwanted insects and fungal disease that will damage our plants and trees. Berthold’s carries a selection of products you can use to combat these unwanted guests.
August
During the first week of August, plant short-season snap beans, broccoli, cabbages, cauliflower, carrots, spinach, and radishes for fall harvesting.
September
September is a good time to begin a compost heap. Begin to layer grass clippings, dried fallen leaves, soil, a handful of fertilizer, and a little moisture.
October
Refresh your garden or containers with mums, gourds and other fall color. Plant your tulips and other spring flowering bulbs. Rake up and discard diseased leaves, fruit and twigs of trees and shrubs to prevent re-infection next year.
November
Water plants deeply (especially evergreens) before the ground freezes. Leave ornamental grasses and interesting seed heads for winter interest in your garden.
December
Clean and repair garden tools before storing away for the winter. Statuary and pots need to be stored too. Spray broadleaf evergreens with an anti-transparent to prevent winter burn.
