Revamping your garden in 2024 offers an exciting opportunity to breathe new life into your outdoor space and enhance its beauty. Whether you’re a seasoned gardener or just starting, setting garden resolutions can help shape a vision for your green haven.
At Sheridan Nurseries, we’re dedicated to helping you achieve your gardening goals, and here are some tips to establish your 2024 garden resolutions.
Begin your 2024 gardening journey by reflecting on the previous year’s achievements and areas that may have presented challenges. Understanding what worked well and what could be improved upon forms a solid foundation for setting realistic resolutions. Here are some prompts to move into a flourishing 2024 gardening season:
Identify specific objectives for your garden in the upcoming year using the SMART goals framework. In setting Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Realistic, and Timely goals you can feasibly ‘Never Stop Growing’.
For example: in 2024 I want to purchase and nurture 5 new native Ontario plants throughout my garden so that by the end of summer I attract visually more pollinators.
Consider integrating sustainable practices into your garden resolutions. Incorporate eco-friendly approaches such as water conservation, plating native Ontario plants, pollinator-friendly plants, and using natural or organic fertilizers, pest controls and soils. Embracing sustainability not only benefits the environment but also promotes a healthier garden ecosystem to help your plants flourish.
Expand your gardening horizons by experimenting with new plants or varieties that you haven’t previously cultivated. Explore diverse species, vibrant flowers, or unique foliage that could add texture and color to your garden landscape. With rising environmental changes, consider choosing varieties that are heat-resistant or drought proof to ensure their longevity.
Develop a comprehensive garden plan for the year ahead. Outline timelines for planting, maintenance tasks, and any landscaping projects you wish to undertake. Organizing your garden activities in advance helps streamline the process and ensures you stay on track throughout the year.
