If you’ve really got a green thumb, then you may be looking for ways to garden even in the winter. While the cold weather can deter some people and plants, there are still ways to garden in the winter. Here are a few tips and tricks to facilitate the process so that you can spend more time in your garden.
Whatever you do, don’t stop watering your plants. They may slow down because of the cold, but they still need water! Keep them hydrated enough to stay alive without giving them excess water that will freeze and destroy the roots.
Mulch will help your plants stay warm and insulated, especially if they’re in the ground and not in pots. Spread the mulch around the stems and replenish as necessary.
Cutting Back Perennials
You’ll need to make sure your perennials are all cut back in order for them to blossom correctly and healthily when spring rolls around. Simply cut off any large or extended pieces so that the plant is as flush with the ground as possible. This will help it avoid being eaten or frozen during winter.
