2014 Gardening Guide and Calendar

Cover 2014 GG

The new 2014 Garden Guide and Calendar is all about pollinators.  Did you know that about 75% of flowering plants rely on bees, wasps, flies, butterflies, moths or beetles for pollination in order to set seeds and fruit?  From those plants comes one-third of our food.

This edition is full of colorful photos of garden pollinators and an at-a-glance monthly planting guide.  Additionally, the twelve month to month pages are loaded with timely instructions regarding proper irrigation methods, vegetable and flower planting, when to prune, and pest management.

Enjoy this new edition by ordering your copy today!  Don’t forget to order extra copies for gift giving!

The Gardening Guide is $11, which includes sales tax.  All proceeds from sales help support Sacramento County UC Master Gardener projects so we can continue to offer you events like Harvest Day, workshops at the Fair Oaks Horticulture Center, plant clinics, and many more gardening support activities.

Key Features of the Gardening Guide:

  • The Gardening Guide is written specifically for the Sacramento area, not "Northern California" or the Bay area, covering 12 months, from January 2014 through December 2014.
  • The Gardening Guide gives you month by month gardening maintenance suggestions, watering information, and how to handle pests and diseases, all based on University of California-approved information.
  • The calendar pages have space to write appointments and can be used as a journal to record gardening activities (like what, when and where the user has planted something, or when the aphids arrive in the spring).

The 2014 Gardening Guide and Calendar is available at retail locations throughout the Sacramento County area. See specific information in the column at the right about locations.   Please note that prices may vary.
