This 2014 WVU Extension Service Garden Calendar celebrates the organization’s 100th anniversary while providing daily tips and reminders to gardeners across West Virginia.
“Gardening has always been an important part of the lives of West Virginians, and WVU Extension Service is here to help ensure gardeners across the state have the knowledge they need to be successful,” said Steve Bonnano, WVU Extension Service interim director.
“For the last 100 years, WVU Extension Service has used trusted research and the knowledge of expertslike our county agentsto assist West Virginians in many areas of gardening, and continually adapts to bring up-to-date, useful gardening advice and information to people across the state.”
The garden calendar provides information for the planting, cultivating and gardening needs that West Virginians experience. Some of these needs include where to plant and the “how-to’s” to keep a garden flourishing.
By offering a West Virginia-specific USDA planting zone map, the calendar helps gardeners decide what plants to grow and when to plant them.
Showcased in each month of the garden calendar are the historic, agricultural achievements and accomplishments attained by the people of West Virginia. From the WV ‘63 blight resistant tomato to the discovery of West Virginia’s first “Golden Delicious” apple, each article offers the reader an interesting perspective into West Virginia’s past.
Although garden calendars provide much of the needed information to keep your plants and garden thriving, you can gain even more information by contacting agents in WVU Extension Service’s local offices.
Any of our 55 WVU Extension Service county offices will be happy to provide you with more gardening information their phone numbers are listed on the inside back cover or you may find them online.
