Edible Garden Newsletter February 2018

Lanark County Master Gardeners
The Edible Garden Newsletter February 2018 is now here.  The days are finally starting to get longer and gardeners are planning what they can plant indoors to get a faster start when spring arrives.  In this issue we discuss lighting, whether it is from a sunny window or from grow lights and how you can use it to get your plants off to an excellent start.  If you are planting your vegetable garden in containers or on a balcony, we have some helpful tips.  Although the days are getting longer, we still have more winter left and it is a great time to experiment with using the parts of your vegetables you would normally put in the compost bin to grow more.  Finally, a housebound gardener tells of a Fava Bean experiment that led to a delicious soup.

Edible Garden Newsletter January 2018

Lanark County Master Gardeners
Edible Garden Newsletter January 2018 is now here.  This is the time of year when vegetable gardeners pour over the seed catalogues to determine what to plant.  How long are my tomato seeds viable?  Is there anyway I can check if they are still viable. How should I store my seeds if I once again, over order.  Find out here.  We all know that some vegetables like to be planted near each other while others do not want to be anywhere near each other.  This month we feature an article on companion planting with a handy chart that shows who likes each other and who does not.  Who knew that cabbage likes to be near Bush Beans but does not like being near Pole Beans.

World Plants

Lanark County Master Gardeners
Our Blog is changing.  In the past, we had a widget on the left side of the Blog that provided access to Canada Plant Website.  That website has disappeared and our blog modified to provide access to World Plant Website.  Enter the website by various plant categories, such as Annual, Perennial, Woody, Bulbs and search for your plant based on common name or botanical name.  If you are looking to identify a plant, enter various plant features and conduct a search.  In addition to searching for plants, the website has other resources that you may find helpful, such as links to presentations, articles and images.  All are copyrighted but may be used for educational purposes.  Spend a little time looking around this new feature and we are sure you will like it as much as we do.

Canada's 150th Birthday celebration is drawing to a close.  Our special Side Bar Feature, Canada's Garden Route will soon be removed from our blog.  Hope you enjoyed it.
