Start Planning

January is the month to organize your garden thoughts and start ordering seeds for the coming year. In addition to the seed and nursery catalogs we all receive in the mail, check out seed company Web sites to help you begin garden planning. Many sites give Web specials, as well as breaks on shipping if you order early. Don’t forget to share orders with friends to reduce shipping costs. Also, some plants should be started early, like petunias and snapdragons. This is another incentive to ordering early.
