Winter can be a brutal time for your garden. If you don’t manage it properly you can come back to find that your garden is gone by the end of winter! So how do you go maintaining your garden in winter? Here are some of the best tips for you below:
- Careful when it comes to watering
Watering in the winter is one of the biggest concerns when it comes to your garden because overdoing it with water can destroy your flowers and garden bed. But that is not something that you have to worry about. In fact, it is something that you can strive to manage yourself. And the better you manage your watering, the better your garden will hold out during the winter!
- Provide cover in the heavy rain periods
Thankfully with a huge range of tarp mats available, you can take the time out to cover your flowers during this heavy period. That means that your garden will be protected during those heavy rains which might damage the quality of your landscape. Whether you have that protection on the whole season or only design it to make it cover the garden during the rainy days, it is down to you.
- Manage your fertiliser
There are so many different types of fertilisers out there that it could be a little overwhelming. But that is why it is important to see how your products react to your flowers and garden during the winter time. Will it enhance or damage the quality of your garden? What will happen? These are the key things that you have to assess when it comes to your garden and fertiliser. On top of that, you have to manage the distribution as it will affect the quality.
- Understand what your flowers need individually
Each flower is different (not shocking there). But that does mean that you need to make sure that your flowers are treated and managed differently in the winter months. This is where it will be wise to see how your flowers react or need to be managed in the cold times. Do your research and see what works with your flowers, so they are able to last through winter.
