Before you daydream off, and if you’re looking for something else to do besides rake leaves, think about this. Arbor Day sprouted in Nebraska in 1872 and since then has grown to International observance. Each participating country declared their own date based on the best planting time for their climate—remember fall up north = spring down south.
Check out the best time for planting in your hardiness zone by visiting the official Arbor Day Foundation website and plan ahead.
Can’t wait for the last Friday in April? Celebrate with Brazil on September 21st then nurture seedlings in teardrop hanging vases thru winter. And don’t forget to share your thoughts on what’s best to grow and plant!
