Knowing details like this mean the difference between a garden that is primmed for spring, or a garden that takes a few seasons to recover from your “helpfulness”.
As you can see, winter is prime time for many gardening tasks that will help you get a jump on enjoying the spring and summer plants. In fact, gardening in winter is essential to enjoying the spring blooms and long term health of your garden.
So if you were thinking winter was a great time for lounging by the fire with a good book, think again. Put on the layers, get out the heavy boots, take up those loppers and wheelbarrow – go forth to garden in your winter wonderland!
