Planning for a Spring Garden

These winter days get me daydreaming about the spring and all things green. To get my gardening fix this time of year I start planning my Spring Garden.

First things first! I order my 3 favorite FREE Gardening catalogs.
-Nature Hills Nursery, Inc.
David Austin Roses

Scout out your yard to identify the places you want to add plants and flowers. How is the soil, drainage, sun exposure? Keep these questions in mind when picking out your new plants. You dont want to purchase plants that wont grow in your area. You will also need to know your Plant Hardiness Zone.

Browse the catalogs to get ideas on what to grow this coming year. Also during this time companies will have special offers and sales. This is a good time to buy and the companies listed above won't mail you your plants until the planting season. When you are in your local hardware store check the gardening section for clearance sales on gardening supplies and pots.

This Spring I will be sticking with my favorites and trying some plants that I have never grown before. Below are my gardening picks for 2014.

HerbsBam Basil , Rosemary, Greek Oregano, Parsley, Thyme.
Vegetables: Cucumbers, Onions, Big Boy Tomatoes, and Potatoes.
Perennials: Hydrangea: Paniculata Unique, David Austin Rose: Heathcliff , and Clematis.
Annuals: Sunflowers: Elegance & Little Becka Hybrid, Verbena: Lanai Royal Purple with Eye

I am going to attempt to grow Luffa this year. That is right, I am going to grow a bath sponge. If I can get it to grow I will write about my experience. If you have grown Luffa before I would love to hear your advice in the comments section.

In the meantime bring some color into your yard by inviting the birds. See my article on Attracting Birds in the Winter

What are planning to plant in your spring garden? Are you planning on trying new plants?
