You’ve probably heard a lot of winter gardening information that may or may not be true, so we were excited to see ShelterPop had posted the truth about common winter gardening myths. Here’s some help for clearing up some of the most common misconceptions:
- Putting mulch around your plants doesn’t keep them warm, but actually helps maintain a regular temperature to keep them from suffering from freeze-thaw cycles.
- Plants can be watered in the wintertime, especially for roof gardens. Just water in the morning on a sunny day that reaches temps higher than 40 degrees.
- There really are winter flowers, and your winter garden can be just as beautiful as it is during the spring. You can take advantage of evergreens, pretty grasses and interesting texture.
