You cannot do a lot in the garden during the cold winter months but that doesn’t mean that you must give up your love of gardening when it’s cold outside. Use the winter months strategically and this time becomes the perfect time to think, plan, and prepare for your spring and summer gardening. Jot down all your ideas and things to-do to create the magical garden that you want this winter and make this upcoming season a little less stressful.
- It’s fortunate, since the best gardens start with the best soil, that most garden soil can be easily amended or augmented to make it suitable to the gardener’s needs.
- For best results, don’t fight your locality and make plant choices that are consistent with the moisture and climate found where you live.
- Choose plants with coloring that will work well with the surrounding landscape and the natural greenery.
