Gardening Tip of the Day
If you live in a region where snow is common during the winter but, has been lacking this year, take out the pruning shears are gather a little insurance for your garden.
Snow acts as in insulator, protecting plants from the drying effect of wind and the heaving associated with the change between warmer daytime and colder nighttime temperatures. If you have had less snow than normal, now is a good time to cover perennial beds with evergreen boughs. Not only will they protect perennials, bulbs and the root zones of other plants, they add a great fresh look to the garden.
