UMass Extension's Garden Calendar

Hinoki Cypress on the cover of the 2022 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 ornamental plants, backyard fruits and vegetables. Our 2022 calendar continues UMass Extension's tradition of providing gardeners with practical information.

Did you know planting the right trees can encourage more caterpillars that in turn support birds? To learn more, as well has how to help keep your plants healthy, productive, and beautiful, the 2022 UMass Garden Calendar offers helpful guidelines, daily tips, and an inspiring garden image each month!

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.
