Crofton Village Garden Club members are already taking advantage of an early spring break in the weather.  They’re organized and know exactly what to do outside to prepare for the upcoming gardening season.  Do you?

Several members got together and created this To-Do List to help Crofton residents get started:

  • Wait until the soil warms and dries before planting summer bulbs, tubers, etc.
  • Plant perennial vegetables and fruits after danger of frost has passed and the ground is workable
  • Prune roses before the buds break
  • Plant shrubs when the ground warms
  • Keep ahead of the weeds
  • Turn the compost
  • Sharpen your tools
  • Test and amend your soil, as needed
  • Prune flowering shrubs when they finish blooming
  • Plant and/or divide your perennials
  • Plant fruit trees and shrubs and perennial vegetables
  • Transplant and seed vegetables after danger of frost (late April / early May)

If you would like to join Crofton Village Garden Club, contact any current member.  You must attend three consecutive meetings as the guest of a member before you will be eligible to join.
