Getting Your Garden Ready for the Cold

Summer has officially ended here in Georgia. We’ve hit the colder months now. While our gardens flourish in the summer, it’s easy to forget about them when autumn rolls around. Here are a few tips for how to keep your garden doing well all through out the winter.

First, weed your plot! You don’t want to let your yard get overgrown as fall and winter come around. It wouldn’t be good to be trying to pull weeds while freezing!

Second, take a look at your soil. Now would be a great time to add good enrichments and nutrients. This means that it’ll be a breeze to get your garden ready in spring. In the same vein, check out all your plants. If you have dead or rotting plants, just get rid of them now! You can replace these plants with heartier winter plants, so that you don’t have to look at your garden filled with nothing! Instead, you’ll be able to see abundance in the winter as well!

Finally, don’t forget about your winged friends. Not only are they lovely to look at, they’ll also snack on those pesky bugs. So, fill up your bird feeder and enjoy all the feathered friends that will come!

Remember that these tips are not just for your own home! You can use these to spruce up any rental properties that you may own. You want to keep that curbside appeal high, even into the colder months!
