Welcome to the J Arthur Bower’s Gardening Calendar, aimed at helping you to get the very best from your garden.
Whether you’ve got a balcony, a pocket handkerchief size plot or rolling acres, our calendar will ensure you get all those essential jobs done at the right time of year.
Don’t worry if that sounds a bit of a chore. More than anything, we want you to enjoy your garden. Nature is very forgiving, and if you can’t get something done at the best time, there’s usually an opportunity to catch up later. In fact, many gardeners will tell you that the best time to do a job is when you remember it! However, there are some tasks that are best done at a particular time – if this is the case, our calendar will tell you why.
