Now is the perfect time to start planning your summer gardens.

Whether you’re going to plant veggies or flowers, make a list of what you’d like to grow this year and order the seeds.

Use our downloadable garden planner to help you with this step.

For even more fun, create a garden inspiration board by hanging up pictures of all of the plants you want to grow this year, or sketch out your garden plots and write in where you are going to put each plant.

This will save you time when you start planting  and will give you something pretty to look at while you wait for the warmer weather to arrive.
