We are Colorado Master Gardeners volunteering at the Jefferson County CSU Extension Office. We hope you will enjoy our writings and learn something about gardening along the Front Range in Colorado. If you have questions, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
The garden centers are buzzing; the big box stores are starting to burst at the seams! Yes, planting season has arrived! Are you confused about what to select for your garden? So many plants, so little time. Here are some online tools that focus on plants that do well in the Front Range in our semi-arid climate.
Plant Select® is a cooperative program administered by Denver Botanic Gardens and Colorado State University in concert with horticulturists and nurseries throughout the Rocky Mountain region and beyond. The purpose of Plant Select® is to seek out, identify and distribute the best plants for landscapes and gardens from the intermountain region to the high plains. Plants are chosen each year that thrive in the unique and variable conditions of Rocky Mountain gardens. Many nurseries now carry plants with the Plant Select tag. www.plantselect.org
