FIVE WAYS TO PREPARE YOUR GARDEN FOR WINTER
1 It’s a great idea to install a rainwater tank during winter so you can store this precious water for use in the future.
2 Less watering is needed in the colder months as the garden is dormant, but when you do water, make sure you use warm tap water so the roots won’t go into shock. And remember to feed all your plants regularly so they’re strong enough to withstand winter.
3 Layering mulch over soil is great for locking in moisture, but remember to remove some of it during winter so the sun can penetrate the soil and warm it up.
