Winter Gardening Stage One – Dreaming & Discovery

Down to Earth, Woman GardeningYes, it’s the middle of winter and the polar vortex has us in her icy grip. You might think it’s too early, but this is actually the perfect time to start planning your flower or vegetable garden.

Per Stuart Leventhal, Down to Earth’s founder, winter garden planning is all about whetting your appetite – a process that involves dreaming and discovery. “This is when new and avid gardeners alike should be perusing a variety of seed catalogues, checking out different layout and design options to makeover or improve your garden.”

Look online, go to the library, buy a few gardening magazines or books. Read your local paper’s gardening expert’s tips. Envision the possibilities, create a vision board (using online and magazine clippings). Start to define the kind of outdoor living and growing environment you’d like to create, and this year’s garden project’s tasks, plants, etc. Then start putting together a supplies list for seeds, seedlings, gardening tools, raised gardening or deck growing equipment, animal control fencing, composting, etc.

With advance planning, this year you can create the perfect garden you’ve always wanted!
