Infographic: A Comprehensive Guide to Winter Gardening
Wouldn’t it be a good idea if you could have a garden that grows all year round? We all know that when winter bites, most crops are damaged extensively. Even those plants in their correct growing zone are not spared. Sometimes, the damage is due to the microclimate that minimizes the hardiness of such crops.
Winter gardening is, therefore, an uphill task that most gardeners dread. Of course with reasons. The downside is a deficit in the supply of fresh vegetables for families and the grocery stores.
Good News, though.
It’s possible to have bountiful winter harvest nearly everywhere in the continental United States. More good news is that the pests normally hibernate or migrate, weeds grows slower, and less water is lost through evaporation. So, with the right guidelines and the proper shelter equipment, your winter gardening experience will be a total success.
