Gardening Through the Seasons

Do you want to know when and how certain garden and landscape tasks should be done? These short instructional videos are designed to provide seasonal tips, techniques and how-to’s for the home gardener.

MSU horticulturists guide you through the gardening season by providing a monthly calendar of practical information in easy to understand video demonstrations.

Many of these videos use the Mississippi State University campus landscape and gardens to provide the instructional material. To find out how you can support the further development of this beautiful educational resource contact the MSU Foundation.
