The dog days of late summer are a trying time for gardeners. Hot and muggy weather makes it hard to keep up on routine garden chores. So, wait until fall to start large projects.
Meanwhile, there are fruitful garden-related activities one can do indoors. This is a good time to begin planning new garden beds and borders for next year.
Also, get your garden notes and records in order for this year. Galison has some new products that will help you do that.
The new Cherry Blossoms List Journal is just the thing for keeping garden lists and notes. This handy spiral bound journal has an elastic closure. The cover is beautifully decorated with images of cherry blossoms from the National Agricultural Library files. It has 140 lined pages. The 40 pages of graph paper are perfect for sketching garden designs. This slim-like journal is 3¾ inches wide and over seven inches in length.
If your desk or work table is overflowing with garden catalogs and garden magazines, get them organized with Galison’s trendy Magazine Holders. Decorated with garden motifs, these sturdy, collapsible holders come in sets of three with color coordinated labels. Four of these magazine holders feature garden themes. Among these are the Happy Butterfly Day, Pinwheel Floral, Garden Party, and William Morris Clover.
