As the weather starts to cool down and winter approaches, it’s important to prepare your garden for the colder months ahead. Here are five ways to get your garden ready for winter:
1. Clean up: Remove any dead or dying plants, leaves, and debris from your garden beds. This will help prevent disease and pests from spreading throughout your garden.
2. Mulch: Add a layer of mulch around your plants to help protect their roots from the cold. This will also help retain moisture in the soil.
3. Protect your plants: Cover your plants with a protective cloth or blanket on cold nights to prevent frost damage. You can also move potted plants indoors or to a sheltered area.
4. Prune: Prune back any dead or diseased branches from your trees and shrubs. This will help promote healthy growth in the spring.

By taking these steps, you can help ensure that your garden stays healthy and vibrant throughout the winter months. Happy gardening!
