UMass Extension's Garden Calendar

Assorted ivies grace the cover of the 2019 UMass Garden Calendar.For many years, UMass Extension has worked with the citizens of Massachusetts to help them make sound choices about growing and maintaining plants in their landscapes, including vegetables, backyard fruits, and ornamental plants.  Our 2019 calendar continues UMass Extension's tradition of providing gardeners with useful information.

In addition, UMass Extension continues to off diagnostic services through both our Soil and Plant Nutrient Testing Lab and our Plant Diagnostic Lab.  This year's calendar features the use of tomography to identify internal decay in mature trees that do not yet show any visible symptoms of damage, making it difficult to assess their potential risk in urban and suburban settings.

Our perennial wish is that you enjoy this calendar as much as we enjoy producing it, and that it is helpful in all your gardening endeavors.
