WVU Extension office Garden Calendar 2013

PRINCETON — The free garden calendar, WVU Extension Service’s most-requested publication, is now available at the Mercer County WVU Extension office. 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. Notes range from tips on when to prune your apple trees, plan your garden layout, or mulch roses.

This year’s topic is making good gardening choices, and the entire calendar is devoted for West Virginia’s planting zones. Each month, the calendar features a short article on a novel or problematic topic written by an extension agent or specialist.  The important notes continue through December. In February, reminders include tips about selection of proper tools for the desired gardening tasks and March focuses on choosing seeds with an explanation of just what those terms on that seeds packet really mean.

In April, readers can learn optional methods of insect control; in May, diseases are examined; in September, how to choose bulbs; and in December, the many benefits of using mulch.

The calendar lists the phone number of each county office of the WVU Extension Service.  To begin the 2013 gardening season with a green thumb, visit the Mercer County office of the WVU Extension Service at 1500 West Main Street to pick up your free calendar today.  In addition, if you have a business and would like a supply of calendars to leave at your business, call our office at 304-425-3079 to see if you can pick up a larger supply as well.
