You may not be aware, but many people continue to have successful garden throughout the winter season. If you are someone who loves growing a garden and tends to miss it once the cold months set it, it may be time for you to begin learning more about winter gardening.
Below you can discover a few tips that will give you a better idea of how people have full and lush gardens even in the coldest of months:
- Plant the Right Plants
There are plants that are very tolerant to cold and other that are not at all. Many of the most well-known above-ground crops that do thrive even in the cold months are brassicas. These are plants like kale, bok choy, most mustards and kohlrabi. Root crops are also great to grow in low temperatures. These are plants like carrots, beets, parsnips and rutabaga
- Dedication Required
If you think maintaining a garden in the summer takes dedication, then think again. Winter garden requires a load of equipment and a ton of monitoring but once your first winter gardening experience is over, it will only get easier every year after.
- Don’t Be Afraid to Integrate
Often people shy away from planting different plants near one another. Winter gardening does not require this. Mix and mingle your plants and reap the rewards!
