10 tips for the garden before winter
When we put on the thick sweaters and enjoy the warmth inside, the garden also enjoys being cared for cared for before hibernating in winter.
1. Outdoor furniture
Wipe your outdoor furniture and store it sheltered under a roof during the winter months so they are ready when the spring sun looks ahead again.
2. Flower beds
Remove wet withered leaves from the perennial flower beds. Dry leaves, on the other hand, can remain and insulate the flower bed during the winter.
3. The lawn
Rake the lawn after the most intense falling of the leaves from the trees. If a few scatter on the lawn after that, they can easily remain. The worms become full and happy and help to loosen the soil.
Feel free to leave some piles of leaves in the autumn so that the hedgehogs get nice winter homes when it's time to hibernate.
5. Delicate plants
Protect fragile plants from the coming spring sun with burlap or pine branches already in the autumn so you do not get unwanted surprises come spring.
6. Ornamental grasses
Leave ornamental grasses untouched in winter. Wait until spring to cut them down so that water in the straws does not burst the plants. In addition, they are beautiful when the frost gets to them. Win win!
7. Spring bulbs
Get spring color by planting spring bulbs in autumn. Until the frost goes into the soil, you can plant for example tulips and daffodils.
Look forward to home-grown garlic for cooking next summer by planting garlic in the autumn!
If you have dahlias, dig up the tubers before the first frost or just after the first one and store them indoors, for example in the cellar until next season.
Decorate your entrance for autumn with a frost-proof pot, beautiful cabbage, pumpkins and heather and enjoy it every day when you get home.
