The Smart Gardening Checklists are a wonderful tool. There are tasks on there that I overlooked. We have only been in this house for a month so there is a lot to do. Thanks!

I’ve downloaded and printed the year's worth. This is such a great thing to have. It’s easy to forget what should be done, but now I don’t have to worry!

Yes! This is exactly what I need!

Why did I create these checklists?

Hi, I'm Cheryl. As a brand-new gardener, my first attempt at trimming our lilac bushes was an epic fail! When they didn't flower the following spring I discovered my mistake. By pruning them in the fall, I removed all of next year's flower buds!🤦‍♀️

So, I made it my mission to know the right time to do everything in my garden. And I spent over 100 hours researching what to do when.

Now knowing what to do in my garden each month is easy! And I created the Smart Gardening Checklists so you can feel confident that you always know when to do what in YOUR garden.🙂

100% Satisfaction Guarantee

I stand behind the Smart Gardening Checklists 100 percent. If you're not completely satisfied within the first 14 days of purchasing, send me an email to let me know why it wasn't a good fit for you. I'll refund your purchase, no questions asked. 


Will these checklists work where I live?

  • If you have a winter season where your ground freezes, these checklists will work for you.
  • The checklists are geared toward USDA hardiness zones 5 & 6, but you can adapt them to your zone. I explain how to do that in the download.

Are the customizable and printable checklists identical?

They have the same checklist items on them.
  • What sets them apart is that the customizable checklist can be tailored to your garden. 
  • The printable checklists can't be changed. 
  • I've provided both formats because not everyone likes working with spreadsheets, and you might find it more convenient to just print up the checklists and use them that way.

What format are the checklists?

  • The customizable set of checklists is in Excel format. It can be read by most spreadsheet programs including Google Sheets.
  • The PDFs are a printable-only version of the checklists. There is one file for each month. There are a number of free PDF reader programs (such as Acrobat Reader) that can open PDFs.
  • The files are in a zipped folder when you download them.

What's the return policy?

I have a 14-day Love It or Leave It Guarantee. Let me know what you don't love about the checklists within 14 days of purchase, and you’ll get your money back.

What if I have questions?

I've included step-by-step instructions on how to use the checklists. But if you have any questions, email me and I'll get you squared away!

How long will I have access to the checklists?

You'll have access to the checklists during the lifetime of the product. Download them as many times as you want. And whenever I update the checklists, you'll get an email notification. 

I believe you can grow your dream garden and still have time to enjoy it. 🌻
