While winter is the perfect time to envision, plot, and organize your garden for the following year, you can still do a number of things in the garden to ensure its health and growth right through the cold season.
Here are 10 things you can do to keep your green thumb alive and well even in the dead of winter.
1. Look for signs of mold and moisture on stored bulbs and tubers
Dormant bulbs and tubers like canna lilies, elephant ears, and tuberous begonias need to be checked once a month to make sure they are remaining wet and no mold has developed.
Don’t let moldy roots spread to the rest of your supply, and don’t let dry roots go to waste; spritz them with water before putting them back in storage.
