GardenDrumKeeping track of colour

Keeping track of flowering times in your garden over the year has been made easy, thanks to Lisa Orgler, lecturer and horticulturist at Iowa State University.

Maintaining colour in gardens over long periods is one of gardening’s greatest challenges. Lisa has a downloadable chart on her blog that helps gardeners observe the rise and fall of their garden’s blooms across the seasons.

It’s a great visual representation of the succession of colours in your garden, showing what is in bloom and when. Not only that, it also shows where the colour gaps are in your gardening calendar, allowing you to choose species to fill them more effectively, giving you a riot of colour over the year.
