Oh the weather outside is frightful

But inside it’s so delightful

Planning which seeds to sow

Let us grow, let us grow, let us grow


Winter doesn’t show signs of stopping

Seed catalogs in the mail are dropping

Gardens planned row by row

Let us grow, let us grow, let us grow


When we finally have it right

And our plans have taken form

We hope to avoid any blight

Or a damaging Spring hailstorm


Grow lights in the windows are glowing

Seed trays with soil overflowing

As long as you tend to them so

They will grow, they will grow, they will grow


Cold weather doesn’t show signs of stopping

But it leaves time to plan crop swapping

Gardens planned row by row

Let us grow, let us grow, let us grow

As weather and temperatures drive gardeners indoors, it doesn’t mean there’s nothing to do! This time of year is perfect for planning next year’s landscape and garden. Each year brings its own stresses and problems but winter is a great time to reflect and strategize improvements for the new and upcoming season.

Utah is the 2nd driest state in the nation, so planning ways to conserve water in the year ahead is a resolution we always recommend to the public. Luckily for us (and for you) the Conservation Garden Park has worked with a team of horticulturists, landscapes designers, maintenance pros, members of the water industry and irrigation experts all from Utah to develop some very “user-friendly” tools to help plan for a successful 2017.

The Localscape concept was introduced to our clients during the 2016 Horticulture Spotlight Lecture Series at Red Butte Garden. We were lucky enough to have the very talented Cynthia Bee, Outreach Coordinator for the Jordan Valley Water Conservancy District, come and present on this topic. In case you missed it- you can still get all of the information HERE!
