For the past 34 years ISU Extension and the Department of Horticulture have published a garden calendar that gives timely tips and suggestions for your garden. The 2012 Garden Calendar goes one step further and features some of Iowa's outstanding public gardens where you can visit to get ideas for your own landscape. For each public garden the calendar includes a photo, location and contact information. ISU Garden Calendars are available for $6 from your local county extension office, the public gardens included or on the Web from the ISU Extension and Outreach online store.
Read more about the garden calendar, including a list of public gardens on the ISU Extension news release website.
