We know how impor- tant it is for members of 'The Socially Set..." to have a good calendar with plenty of room to mark all their upcoming family and social events. One of our favorites, the "2012 UMass Garden Calendar," is now available. The 2012 calendar contin- ues UMass Extension's tra- dition of providing gardeners with useful information. The calendar is dedicated to Deborah C. Swanson, who retired from the Plymouth County/UMass Extension in January 2011. ' Delotah ervetP as  in Ex- tension Specialist for Ply- mouth County for more than 34 years and was an Educa- tor with UMass Extension for 40 years, starting her career at the Waltham Field Station. In recent years, she has served as Director of the Plymouth County Coopera- tive Extension. Deborah's expertise in perennials and woody ornamentals is highly regarded by everyone who has sought her advice over the years. Her technical contributions and photo- graphs have been integral to the success of the UMass Garden Calendar. We cannot part with our old calendars and admit that we have saved all of them and often enjoy looking at the beautiful photos they feature. This year's calendar in- cludes tips for continuous bloom in the perennial garden, including a helpful chart with the watering and sunlight needs of suggested perennials. As in previous calendars, daily gardening tips provide information on garden pests and management strategies to help gardeners reduce pesticide usage as well as "how-to and when" tips such as dates to plant peas, reno- vate lawns, prune and fertil- ize roses, conserve water in the landscape, and many more.
