GARDENING FOR NORTH CENTRAL WASHINGTON

A DAY-BY-DAY RESOURCE©

This Day by Day Calendar was written by Bonnie Orr (WSU Master Gardener Chelan-Douglas County) with the assistance of Debra Benbow (WSU Master Gardener Chelan-Douglas County).

The guide is designed for you to keep a weekly garden journal, one of the truly important aspects of gardening.

  • Mark when a plant blooms.
  • Mark the weather, precipitation, frost, soil temperature, planting days.
  • Mark the first appearances of specific pests, beneficial insects.

The WSU Chelan/Douglas County Master Gardener Program engages university-trained volunteers to empower and sustain diverse communities with relevant, unbiased, research-based horticulture and environmental stewardship education.

Let’s talk plants! Plant and insect diagnostic clinics

WSU Master Gardener Program volunteer diagnostic teams identify plant and pest problems and recommend solutions for lawns and gardens. Chapter foundations are key to financial support of these plant clinics.

The first test plant clinic was held at the Tacoma Mall in 1972, with overwhelming results. This led to the beginning of the WSU Extension Master Gardener Program in 1973, and today university-educated volunteers conduct plant clinics throughout Washington state, the US, and internationally.
