For the love of gardening...
If you have a love for gardening we’re sure you’re always looking for something to do outside. We have created a Monthly Garden To-Do List to help you keep up with the maintenance and projects that should be done throughout the year. Our list was written specifically for USDA Zones 7b and 8a.
January: The calendar may say winter, but there is still plenty to do to keep you outside in the garden. Click here to learn more.
February: Punxsutawney Phil lives far away from South Carolina so don’t wait for the groundhog to tell you spring is on its way! Click here to learn more.
