Whether you’re a novice gardener or a horticulture pro, it’s time to start planning what to do in your garden over the next 12 months. From fruit trees to box hedges, successfully designing your outdoor space comes from knowing how to plant things — and in what month.
According to research from Hopes Grove Nurseries, Google search terms for ‘gardening’ and ‘planting’ were at an all-time high last summer thanks to nationwide lockdowns. The world may have opened up again, but gardening shows no sign of slowing down.
Need some help on where to begin? To make it easier than ever, Hopes Grove Nurseries have released a clever plant calendar with details on when to plant flowers, seeds and delicious veggies.
“As we move into 2022, we are committed to helping new gardeners to keep up with their newfound passion for gardening by making it easier than ever before to know what to plant and when,” say Hopes Grove Nurseries.
“We understand that everyone has different needs and limitations when it comes to gardening, whether that be space, time or other matters. This is why our plant calendar is simple, easy to follow, and has everything you need to know about when to plant things like fruit trees, hedges and many other varieties of plants.”
