How to prepare the garden for winter

In the fall, homeowners begin to clean up their gardens so that the site is ready for the next season. However, not all plants need to be pruned at the same time, as each crop has its own time to bloom or bear fruit.

OBOZREVATEL has found useful tips to help you properly prepare your garden for winter. Most owners make mistakes that harm crops, leading to their death.

Summer Plants

Plants that bloom or bear fruit in the summer should be pruned or torn out in the fall. If the crops are healthy and have not been affected by various diseases, it is enough to cut them to the roots, which is good for the soil. By leaving the roots to decompose in the ground, you enrich the soil with nutrients and can grow other vegetables or flowers on it next year.

However, be careful to leave the roots of only healthy plants. Since many diseases are transmitted through the soil, other crops can become infected, leading to wilting or even death. It is better to burn the diseased plant.

Autumn Crops

In the fall, gardeners can still plant many vegetables or herbs, so it's worth clearing the area and preparing a place for other plants. You can sow arugula, dill, parsley, lemon balm, mint, plant radishes, onions, or winter garlic.

Cover Crops

If you don't want to leave some areas of soil empty for the winter, you can sow them with cover crops. This will help avoid weeds, and erosion of the topsoil, and also protect beneficial insects from frost and cold. Such crops include Persian clover, Egyptian clover, oilseed flax, white mustard, oats, barley, rye, and others.

Preparing for Spring

If you want your garden to bloom profusely in the spring, you should start preparing for it now. After you've removed all the plants and cleared the soil of weeds, fertilize to fill the soil with useful and nutritious substances. You can use compost, just scatter it around the site.

Earlier, OBOZREVATEL published a list of perennial flowers that can be planted in the garden in September.
