2 WHAT TO DO IN JANUARY Watch your Watering! Watering houseplants in winter is tricky. Some grow actively (orchids and ferns) and some want to rest (succulents like hoya and cactus). Those active growers should get watered weekly. Err on the dry side for those that are resting. JANUARY Get Ready to Renaissance Seminar (6 pm) Martin Luther King Jr Day of Service

3 WHAT TO DO IN FEBRUARY Prune! Sharpen your saws and get outside! Study the architecture of your trees and cut out branches that are crossing as well as any that are diseased or dead. Cut off all branches just outside the branch bark ridge and don t leave any stubs (which invite decay). FEBRUARY 1 Beautification Grant applications released on line 2 Groundhog Day Valentines Day 15 Presidents Day

4 MARCH WHAT TO DO IN MARCH Sow Some Seeds! Annual flower seeds can be sown as soon as the ground is tillable. Sow part of your seed now and the remainder in April. These include Poppies, larkspur, calendula, sweet peas, nigella and sweet alyssum First Day of Spring Beautification Grant Applications Due 17 St. Patrick s Day ANNUAL CONFERENCE AT BETHEL WOODS 27 Easter Intern Applications Due 30 Volunteer Open House 31

Intern Orientation Celebrating Sullivan Spaces - location tbd Memorial Day 31

7 WHAT TO DO IN JUNE Pinch Your Plants! Chrysanthemums, bee balm, asters, sedum and other late summer blooming plants can grow too tall. If you pinch out the tops so they stand only 6-8 tall this month it will cause them to branch freely and increase their blooms later in the season. Call us at (845) to request assistance with organizing a Flower Power Planting event in your community! JUNE 1 Gardening 103 at CCE (6 pm) Flag Day National Garden Week Fathers Day Celebrating Sullivan Spaces - location tbd Flower Dollars Expire

8 WHAT TO DO IN JULY Watch Your Watering! This is the month when attention to watering must be heeded! Plants will check and stop growing which means less flowers of fruit. Water deep and long, not in short light spurts. Water early in the day as well. Just as Mother Nature provides morning dew - water in the morning - Do! Do! JULY Call us at (845) to request assistance with organizing a Get Ready for Judging gardening event in your community! 3 4 Independence Day 5 6 Summer Gardening Seminar (6 pm) Bastille Day Garden Tour Celebrating Sullivan Spaces - location tbd

9 WHAT TO DO IN AUGUST Mulch to Keep the Soil Cool and Moist! Check you mulched areas and be sure that there is 1-2 of mulch. There are many types of mulches to use and many are free. 1 of chopped up leaves works great in the flower and vegetable garden. Straw (not hay) will work for vegetables too. 2 of double wood chips are great under trees and shrubs. Avoid dyed mulches - stick to the natural types. When mulching a new area, water deeply first. Then lay down a few sheets of newspaper over the soil before applying the mulch. AUGUST Call us at (845) to request assistance with organizing a Get Ready for Autumn gardening event in your community! Beautification Binders due AWARDS CEREMONY AT BETHEL WOODS Groups Present to Judges 5 Groups Present to Judges Judges Site Visits

10 SEPTEMBER WHAT TO DO IN SEPTEMBER Look at Your Lawn! If you have lots of bare spots, crabgrass or other weeds taking over, this is the month to renovate your lawn, bring soil and get the ph tested at Cornell Cooperative Ext. Buy a quality grass seed and plant as early in the month as possible so a deep root system can get established before winter. The new lawn will come in thick and crowd out the weeds next spring. 4 5 Labor Day 6 7 Seminar at CVI (6 pm)

11 WHAT TO DO IN OCTOBER Plant Spring Blooming Bulbs! Naturalize your plantings by scattering deer proof daffodil and other species of narcissus, Siberian squill, grape hyacinth and cammasia bulbs and planting them where they fall. They will appear to be growing wild. You can also plant in drifts in the perennial border. This naturalizing on a smaller scale involves planting the same type of bulbs in informal ribbons. Traditionally bulbs are planted in clumps of five or ten. In the spring the planting will appear to be a well established clump and look more natural than in a single row or in formal rows. OCTOBER Rosh Hashanah Early Admission Beautification grant applications released on line 9 10 Columbus Day Seminar at CVI (6 pm) Yom Kippur Halloween Early Admission Beautification grants due All seminars and events to be held at the CVI Building at 225 Sullivan Avenue in Ferndale unless otherwise noted. Dates and locations are subject to change.

12 NOVEMBER WHAT TO DO IN NOVEMBER Feed the Birds! We attract birds by planting the right kind of trees, shrubs and flowers for forage and protection and place birdhouses in our gardens. Now that frost has brought us towards winter, it is time to feed our feathered friends and keep them nesting nearby. Since our gardens provide insects for them to feed on during the growing season, extend the favor with seed and suet this winter Election Day Seminar at CVI (6 pm) Veterans Day Thanksgiving

13 DECEMBER WHAT TO DO IN DECEMBER Decorate the Yard! Holiday decorations can extend into the garden. A living Christmas tree with lights, wreaths on the barn, garage or shed door and plenty of cheery window boxes and containers filled with pine, spruce and fir boughs, red twig dogwood and winterberry will give us a cheery break as we plan next year s garden Seminar at CVI (6 pm) First Day of Winter Hanukkah 25 Christmas Day
