During the frigid winter months, there is a high probability that your garden could bear the brunt of it all. Homeowners can become proactive today when it comes to protecting their outdoor plants from frost. Here is a helpful guide to help you ensure your plants are protected during the cold winter months.
In the spring, flowers tend to bloom naturally, so starting the protection plan of your plants in the winter all begins in the spring. It is during this time that you should use row covers to protect your vegetables and other outdoor plants. Row covers can ultimately be used to help create a much warmer environment under them.
Cover The Whole Plant
One of the key components to protecting your outdoor plants throughout the frosty season is to cover them completely. You can do this by using newspapers or old sheets to protect your beloved plants. But, you must take the time to cover the entire plant. It is also best to have the plants covered before sunset to ensure that the plant is fully protected against any potential frost that might come through during the winter.
In The Fall
After you begin the protection process in the spring, there is still some work to be done during the fall ahead of the winter season. To adequately protect your plants, you’ll want to cover all the delicate flowers in your garden and other outdoor plants, especially on frosty nights. This will prolong the extra weeks of gardening you have ahead of you.
There are many different things you can do to proactively take advantage of the warmer days that are in the near future. Properly tending to your garden throughout the year will ensure that your outdoor plants withstand the frosty winter months.
