Monthly Maintenance Calendar

We have put our Garden & Landscape Maintenance Calendar together to give gardeners tips on the activities they should be doing on a month by month basis. These tips are base on our zone conditions (Zone 6) here in Western Michigan. Many of these activities will still be relative to other areas of the country, but may need to be done in different months. In zones 9-11 some overwintering activities may not apply. We have displayed our average temperature for each month. This should give you idea based on your average monthly temperature when you should be performing this certain tasks or activities.

This month doesn’t have a lot of inside or outside gardening chores for those of us in zone 5 or 6, and it’s probably a blessing, since the holidays create busy-ness of their own. But there are a few things to keep in mind as you go about your preparations for celebrations.
