The summer garden season may be over, but in many areas, fall gardening tasks are far from done! In order to grow a great garden next year, there are a few things you will want to do now, to set yourself up for success.

In addition to making notes about this year’s garden crops (what did well, what didn’t, which varieties had problems and how you will avoid them next time around, where things were planted so you can properly rotate crops, etc.), there are a number of other tasks to take care of in the next few weeks.

Here is a quick checklist of what needs to be done now to prepare for a better garden next spring, so you can check off any tasks that you haven’t yet completed:

1. Plant Hardy Seeds

2. Plant Flowering Bulbs

3. Prepare Veggie Beds

4. Plant Garlic

5. Divide, Move, and Plant

6. Dig Up Tender Bulbs

About the author 

Rose S.

An avid gardener since childhood, I love sharing my passion for gardening with others! I have gardened in a number of different climates and settings, from large fenced garden plots, to tiny patio and container gardens, and I firmly believe that everyone can learn to grow at least some of their own food - no matter where you live. Growing your own food can help you take control of your own health and food supply, and there has never been a better time to get started!
