Prepare Your Garden For Winter

Now that Winter is setting in, it is essential to prepare your garden to survive the colder months. As much as Autumn gardening is all about clearing away – Winter gardening is all about ensuring you get the best out of your garden during the winter so that it will be in good shape come the spring and summer.

Plant your Evergreens

Now is the best time to be planting Evergreens to fill your garden up. With the seasonal flowers of the summer now gone it is time to fill your garden up with something else. Most Evergreens can still be planted in late Autumn and some can even be planted in the winter months. Daphne is a great addition to any garden in the winter and is very low maintenance. Coming in to the winter is also a great time to plan Holly as come December it will really be giving your garden that Christmassy feel.

Remove shade from your greenhouse

When the clocks change it reaches havoc on the daylight cycle your greenhouse plants are used to. When the days become shorter a lot less light is available – so you will need to do everything you can to ensure your plants get maximum sunlight exposure. If you have a cover remove this permanently through the winter months and then look at other ways you can optmise the transparency of the glass. It may need a good clean with hot water to get the glass sparkling clean so the most sunlight can get through. Now is also the best time to think about replacing those broken panes as cracks and scratches can also effect sunlight exposure.

Make leaf mould

Any trees you have in your garden will have surely lost all of their leaves by now and there really is no point in wasting such a valuable, free resource. Leaf mould adds organic matter to your soil and the colder months are the best time to start getting prepared in advance. Using a wire mesh to construct a bin is the best way to collect leaf mould as the air gets to them in a better way than it would with a standard closed in bin like one you would use for compost. If you have no wire mesh you can use a bin bag with holes in and then tie it at the top. All you need to do is collect the leaves and sprinkle them with water and then wait a couple of years. Getting into a routine of completing this every Autumn/Winter will ensure you have a fresh batch of leaf mould every year.

Net your ponds

This may sound a bit strange – but people really do not realise how much rogue leaves falling into ponds can block filters and pumps. Putting a netting or a mesh over your pond is not only a great way to stop filters getting blocked, but it is also a great way to collect leaves without even trying.
