The days are getting longer. This is a quiet month for gardening, but of course there are things you can do.
Fortunately the days are getting longer. Snowdrops, crocuses and sweet violets start to appear. This is a good month to start sowing indoors.
As soon as the sun shines and the temperatures rise your hands start itching and you want to start working in your garden. Fortunately there are many things you can do.
Spring is now visible. Buds are visible and there are many flowers. It is always exciting to see if all the plants have survived the winter.
The summer is approaching. The bulbs are fading and the planting out bedding can begin.
In this month the summer begins. The garden is in full bloom. You can enjoy all the beauty, but watch out for drought. In this warm season the soil can dry out fast.
Take your time to enjoy your garden. Sit down have a cool drink and look around you. While sitting there you will probably see some things that you have to do, because that is the way it works after all.
It is holiday-time. If you are not at home it may be wise to have someone that waters your plants. It can be very hot and dry this time of the year. If you are home you can enjoy your garden. Of course there are some thing you can do.
The days are getting shorter and now it is harvest time. You have been watching the development and now you can start tasting. Hopefully they taste as good as you have hoped they would.
The leaves are changing colour. Autumn has really set in. That means a lot of raking, but do not remove all the leaves. Leaves protect plants against frost, they will decompose and provide nutrients to the soil and they are a source of food and protection for birds, insects, hedgehogs and other animals.
The leaves are falling rapidly. Time to protect animals and plants against the cold, wind and rains.
The last bulbs can be planted if the weather is mild. The shortest day of the year is in December. Time to light candles in the house and do not go outside for too long if is it too cold.
