Because We Never Stop Learning...

Cold days are approaching and you have already purchased for the family shelter. What will happen to the garden?

Put your garden ready for winter is an essential activity in colder regions, where dry and freezing conditions can take a toll on your beloved plants. Even in warm climates, there is much to be done.


1. Plant bulbs that bloom in spring like tulips and daffodils. Put it at any time between September-in cold regions-and December-in the warmest, where the soil can be worked with ease.

2. Rake leaves and order them, preferably in mounds, so that they function as a fertilizer. Soils poorly raked and without paying can be dried or become infertile.

3. Start all annual flowers and vegetables damaged by frost. Locate these remains in the mounds. If you suspect may have been ill, throw them away.

4. Cut almost to the ground any perennial whose foliage has turned ugly. The seed heads and dried foliage of some perennials add some charm in the winter months, while some will look awful.

5. Weeds. The action of the fall will prevent weeds proliferate at the beginning of next spring, saving work in the long term.

6. Dig tender bulbs. The begonias, gladioli, dahlias, and most other summer plants will not survive a harsh winter. Store the bulbs in vermiculite in a package of paper and place it in a cool, dry place.

7. Protects roses.

8. Where temperatures fall beyond the 10 degrees Fahrenheit, apply a winter mulch to perennials. What is this? It merely provides a cloak organic light like crushed autumn leaves, pine needles or straw, on beds to protect plants from inclement winter. Avoid mulches more compact and entire leaves, because they can suffocate plants.

9. Protects evergreens, such as rododentro (or azalea obtusa) and holly, with anti-desiccant spray. This prevents water loss at the hands of the winter winds.

10. Water the perennials and small trees and shrubs when the weather is especially dry autumn. Its foliage and stems need to be strong and plump to prevent damage from drying winds.

Tips & Warnings

* Preserves your favorite plants before the frost arrives. Small annuals and herbs are ideal to be transplanted into pots, so they can spend the winter inside a sunny window.

* Do not fertilize or plant podes on the end of "their" stations. Both actions could create new growth that will almost certainly would be interrupted by low temperatures. All you can do is to cut branches and foliage damaged.
