37. Garden Tips To Remember
Have you ever just wanted a reference guide for winter vegetable tips? Well, I have gathered up some of my old notes, and compiled them here to share with you some of the best winter vegetable tasks that will boost your spring outdoor garden. Here you can refresh you memory with some of the basic gardening tips. Enjoy!
During the winter months, you will need to check your apple and pears that are in your cold storage every week or so and make sure you pick out any fruits that are rotting so that your other fruits will last longer.
In the early winter months, make a trip or two to the woods and gather up any nuts that you can find to dry out and eat for a simple treat!
If the ground is not frozen, it is not too late to plant a tree.
As the winter months continue – in January or February you can plant you garlic, about four inches in the ground. Just drop the garlic in and cover back up. You will have a jump on the spring months for the first thaw.
You can start cauliflower and broccoli seeds in the greenhouse during February and March for healthy plants you can plant outdoor in early May and June when the frost has passed.
When planting your seeds in the greenhouse in the winter months, for spring planting, keep your onions, carrots, beets and other plants such as peas, radishes, spinach and beans to the center of your greenhouse shelving. Plant small lower growing plants against the walls of the greenhouse so that you don’t experience any shading problems when starting seeds.
You can start ordering your seeds, planters, and fertilizers as early as September for your December and January planting in the greenhouse. There are often items that are backordered because of the popularity and growing periods.
During the early winter months is the best time to double check all the seals in your greenhouse, so that when you are ready to plant your seeds you won’t have other growing problems related to drafts and heat.
When you are getting ready for winter planting in the greenhouse, you will also need to set up your heating system, check out that the temperature is holding up, and that you have implemented a back up system in case the electricity would happen to go out.
