Preparing Your Garden For the Winter

Winter flowers The leaves are beginning to fall off of the trees and the cooler winter temperatures are rolling in. That means it’s time to prepare your plants and garden for the winter. At Ace of Gray, we pride ourselves on being more than a hardware store with a Garden Center, but providing valuable education to gardeners so that your plants are healthy and you’re making the most of your gardening experience. This is why we’ve taken the time to put together a guide to help you find what you should be planting this month. Check it out!

According to the University of Georgia Cooperative Extension (UGA Extension), November and December are great months to get ready for the new year. Spreading manure, rotted sawdust and leaves over your garden and plowing them under – don’t forget to save those plants for a compost heap!

Now, it’s time to take inventory. Everyone loves to save money, right? If you like to get the most for your money, taking inventory at the end of the year can save you a lot of money next gardening season. Maybe you had too much of some vegetables and not enough of others – or maybe there were some unnecessary “skips” in the supply. Now is a great time to make a note about favorite varieties and start planning next year’s garden now.

Last, but not least, look around at your gardening tools and see what needs to be replaced, then hint for those as a Christmas gift.
