New Year’s Resolutions Fossil Creek Nursery Style

January 9th, 2018

New Year’s resolutions are one of those things that help hold yourself accountable, but it’s never too late to make a lifestyle change or set a goal. In our opinion, every day is a new day to do something great, whether for yourself, someone else or your plants!

Finally, a list of New Year’s resolutions that every gardener can keep! Here are our 18 favorite goals for 2018 to add to your list.  

  1. Hang a bird feeder (or two) to welcome some wildlife to your garden
  2. Start a composting bin
  3. Enjoy the fruits of your garden and cook a meal with fruits or veggies from your backyard
  4. Learn more about the types of plants that thrive in a Colorado climate
  5. Give a living gift from your garden to a neighbor
  6. Plant a new tree

  8. Spend more time in the garden

  10. Build a raised bed

  12. Nurture a plant from a seed start
  13. Feed with fertilizer! Give your plants the nutrients they need through a proper fertilizing product
