Putting your garden to sleep

PUTTING YOUR GARDEN TO SLEEP
As the cold winds of winter greet us, its time to put our garden to sleep.

PUTTING YOUR GARDEN TO SLEEP

Start with your bushes and larger plants buy trimming off any dead wood that find throughout, by doing this now it will allow for any easier spring clean up.

Your lower perennials are next; measuring 6 inches from the root ball, clip back excess stems.  This will allow room for new growth in the spring.  Take this opportunity to hang on to your fragrant clippings, as they will provide great aromatherapy during the cold winter months.

Once you have tamed your perennials and have them cut back, liberally spread mulch over the root ball and clipped plant.  This mulching will protect your perennial from the cold winds of winter.  In the Spring this mulching will provide a warm sheltered cover that will allow your perennials to recover from a deep sleep.
