The LSU AgCenter’s 2005 Get It Growing Calendar offers Louisiana gardeners something special, and it’s available for holiday gift-giving.

Packed with gardening hints and tips specifically written for Louisiana’s growing conditions and climate, the calendar is a unique gift for anyone who enjoys the outdoors – or who simply enjoys beautiful garden photos.

The full-color, 32-page calendar features a special section on azaleas, gardening tips for each month of the year and photos of beautiful flowers, vegetables and plants. Its gardening tips were written by LSU AgCenter horticulturist Dan Gill, who is known across the region for his expertise on Louisiana gardening and is the author of Month-by-Month Gardening in Louisiana and coauthor of the Louisiana Gardener’s Guide.

The calendar, which is designed as part of the LSU AgCenter’s popular Get It Growing educational campaign on home lawns and gardens, also has an illustrated how-to section on successfully building landscape beds.

It sells for $11.95 and is available for online orders at  Sample photos and more information also are available through that site.

In addition, phone orders can be placed by calling (225) 578-2263. The calendar also is available through a variety of bookstores, garden centers and gift shops across the state.

Proceeds from calendar sales will support horticulture scholarships for students, as well as horticulture research and educational efforts of the LSU AgCenter.
