                         Three Tips to Prepare For Winter

 

Get your garden ready for the cold with these winter gardening tips:

1.  Soil/Landscape:

Now is the time to clean up your soil.

Pull up weeds, add fertilizer and soil supplements if not yet done for the calendar year (compost mix, slow release nutrient mix etc.).

 

2. Tools:

Winterize your tools, release hoses and drain (prevents any freezing and expanding of water within the hoses that can cause breaks).

Maintenance your power tools (mower etc) (refer to your owners manual for details on how to do so).

 

3. Plants

Plants such as Rosemary and Thyme can last in harsh winter conditions yet need to be protected (burlap or straw) refer to your local gardening extension on specific tasks for the plants you have.
