Mid-Atlantic Gardening Calendar 2018
Timing is a key to a successful garden that produces plentiful blooms or plentiful fruits. Starting and maintaining a garden can seem very overwhelming, as there are many tasks that need to be done during the upcoming spring months. However the winter is the best time to start planning ahead, and with proper preparation, research, and by planning ahead of time, you will have great success in your garden this year. To help you along the way with your planning, Goffle Brook Farm has created a garden calendar for Spring 2018 in the Mid-Atlantic area.
Utilizing a Garden Calendar
Use of a calendar in gardening can be a very helpful tool for planning and keeping up with all of the tasks that need completed in the spring. Having a day by day list to follow with all of the gardening tasks that need to be done will also ensure that you don’t forget about an important step in gardening. A garden calendar is the best way to plan ahead and set a schedule for gardening ahead of time. It’s also a great way to keep track of tasks that need repeated in your garden, like fertilizing, watering, or swapping plants out of the sun and shade. Following a calendar will ensure that you provide your plants with the correct amounts of water, sunlight, and lead to better quality plants of any kind.
If you don’t already use a calendar simply because you’ve never seen a use for it, a garden calendar is a great way to understand the importance of proper planning. A calendar can benefit anyone who isn’t very organized and help you become less forgetful about events, important tasks, and are great for any hobbies that require special timing and planning, such as gardening. They are a great tool to use to give yourself deadlines for important tasks, rather than just estimating when you will get something done. And thankfully, with the advent of smartphones and computer calendars, setting up reminders for gardening is easier than ever and can be done right from this website with just a few clicks. Here’s how easy it is…
1.) On our Gardening Calendar page, navigate to the month you’d like to export to your calendar. On the bottom right of the calendar page, click “Export Events” to export the entire month’s events. If you’d like to export a single calendar event, you can do so by clicking the “iCal export” button on any event such as this page.
2.) When prompted, open the file you just downloaded and it will open in your default calendar program or phone application.
3.) Save the calendar events you opened, and now it’s in your calendar. It’s that simple.

There are so many of ways to utilize a garden calendar since a large part of gardening is just following feeding and watering schedules for plants; so we really hope this gardening calendar will help you be able to consistently care for your garden this spring! It can be easy to forget about an important garden task, and sometimes by the time you remember to do the task, it can be too late in the season to fix the problem. This is why a garden calendar is very helpful and should be used especially if you find the amount of tasks in the garden overwhelming, and find yourself forgetting to do just one important thing year after year.
