December, 2017

Plant Hardiness Zones Map | Last Spring Frost Map | First Fall Frost Map
UW Extension County Offices

By Sharon Morrisey, Consumer Horticulture Agent, Milwaukee County University of Wisconsin Extension

Wisconsin Yard and Garden Tips is updated monthly by Milwaukee County UW-Extension. Applicability in northern Wisconsin counties may be delayed one to two weeks in spring, and advanced a like period in fall.

Sharon Morrisey, Milwaukee County UW-Extension

It seems unreal that after 23 years of submitting a garden calendar every single month (well, almost), this is my final one. As I mentioned last month, I am retiring next month. But I think 23 years is long enough for a feature such as this. Surely, my successor will be full of enthusiasm

Organic Gardening Information

Helping You Grow Your Own Food

Organic Gardening Information is a culmination of all my years
of organic gardening. I’ve been growing vegetables and fruits
for my family and the organic markets for over 20 years. And
I’m learning more every day on my five acres here in Southern
California. I’m taking these experience’s and my knowledge to
provide you with the latest, time-tested information on Organic
Gardening whether you’re an organic gardening newbie or an experienced

Information you can use right away to grow your own vegetables
in a way that is safe for you, your family and the
environment. One thing I’ve learned is that there is no
“right way” to grow organically. Remember, always keep it
simple, because “simple” is easy to manage in the long run.
If you’re new to gardening, take baby steps and start small.

The Basic Needs of the Plants in your Garden

All plant groups have the same elemental needs of water, light and air,
but the quantity and intensity of each of these elements varies greatly.

Cacti thrive in continuous sun with very little water,
but would quickly rot in a bog.
Mosses and Lichens won’t survive without the cool, moist,
dimly lit environment of the forest floor.
Some plants grow well in alkaline soil, while others thrive in acidic soil.

The Rules of Gardening

Thankfully, gardening isn’t based on a set of ‘absolute rules’ but can be more appropriately considered to be ‘suggested guidelines‘ for growing.
With experience, you will learn to bend the rules a little and make adaptations to your gardens to allow you to

Of Plums and Pignuts | forest gardening and perennial vegetables


The core of this site is a collection of plant portraits, covering the propagation, growing, harvesting, storing and eating of individual plants used in forest gardening. The Plant Portrait feed in the main menu above or the list of plants in the right sidebar (at the bottom if you are using a mobile phone) lead to articles on the species and techniques used in forest gardening, or use the Search box to find a species. The Plant Lists menu item gives information on many plants in table form, while the Get plants menu gives some pointers on where to get forest garden plants from and my own trade list.

Gardening and Growing with The Garden Helper

Winter Gardening

This time of year finds most people scurrying about with a long list of ‘gotta-dos’.
Probably the last thing on anyone’s mind is working in their gardens.
Fortunately, the list of winter gardening ‘to-dos’ is more like a list of ‘don’t-dos’

There are a few things to keep an eye on, and a few optional things you can do in the garden like
transplanting trees and shrubs and taking some hardwood cuttings.
Your biggest concern will probably be tending to your house plants.

Please don’t forget about taking care of your feathered friends!
Keep your bird feeders cleaned and filled, especially when there is snow on the ground!
