Early preparations are key to your garden surviving the winter

When winter arrives it is very important that you have already made preparations in your garden. These preparations will ensure that your garden remains looking good throughout the winter, and it will also ensure that you don’t have too replace or rescue any plants that have been damaged in the winter months.

When you get ready to make preparations for your garden for winter, it is a good idea to look back on what happened the previous season. Look at what you are happy with, and what you weren’t, this will allow you to make the right decision about what plants you need to move where.

This is the right time of year to start thinking about how you want to change your garden for the winter months. Start considering what sort of plants you need to remove, and which ones you might need to move to other locations. You should also start planning where you want to plant bulbs in time for spring so that you maximise this time of year which can be filled with colours.

You should also tidy up your garden before winter arrives as it is a chore that you won’t want to do when the weather gets colder. Make sure you do all the weeding needed and get rid of any leaves in the garden. It can also be a good idea to dig up any bulbs which are not from hardy plants and keep them indoors as this will prevent them from dying in the very cold weather.

Just before winter is also the perfect time to start a compost bin. Obviously this is not essential for the survival of your garden, but it can be a great place to get rid of many of the things you collect at this time of year, such as leaves which have fallen from trees.
