One of the problems in writing about 'what to do in the garden this month' is the fact that the website is viewed by gardeners from all over the world! So, temperature zones and all manner of changes need to be catered for. As well as people living in different 'zones, there is also the problem of climatic and seasonal changes.
Gardening seasons start and finish at different times each year! We do not intend to get involved in arguments about which month is in which season!
So, until we set up office at various places around the world, I ask you to treat this guide as a general idea as to what you should - or should not be doing - in your garden this month! The South of the UK is different to the North - (climatically) and our ever-increasing audience from the USA are well aware of the differences between states, and as such are ever-forgiving of some of what I write!
Wherever you are, treat 'this month in the garden' as a general guide and adjust by a month or so to where you live. The pages will feature an image slider which will be topical of what is probably in flower for that particular month. That should give a better idea of what the 'Gardening Month' is - as distinct to what the calendar says!
Always happy to have your views, and reports of any inconvenience caused by my centering the information based upon my experience of gardening in the South of England! This is generally classed as hardiness zone 9 with average annual temperatures of (min 5.9 deg C) to (max 13.5 deg C). More information here
