Preparing perennial plants facing winter

plant facing winter

Green thumb gardeners enjoy their healthy perennial plants during spring and summer. Actually, they have been taking care of the plants since the end of autumn and early winter.

Preparing plants to survive during the freezing winter can be simple and fast in 3 steps:
– Trimming the old branches and leaves and clean-up the debris on the ground. This will help to avoid the re-infection of the insects and diseases to your plants next spring.
– Watering the plants thoroughly before the ground freezes. In winter, plants lose more of their moisture even though they are not growing.
– Adding a cup of worm castings or vermicompost nearby the stem and root and cover it with mulch. Vermicompost will supply the nutrients to your plants to go through the winter strong and healthy.
