Regardless of whether your region's winters are perpetually chilly or pleasantly moderate, gardening can pose a lot of difficulties, but it can also provide opportunities. Whether you are planning for your summer or spring planting, are looking to grow fresh herbs and vegetables, or simply want to keep your favorite plants alive during the colder months, winter gardening provides a lot more options than you probably ever realized. Winter is also the best time to stock up on gardening supplies, as most gardening centers usually offer great discounts to boost their winter sales. There is no reason for you not to keep your thumb green throughout the entire year.
A lot of gardeners just hang up their gardening tools for the winter and wait until the weather becomes warmer, but this should not be the case. Depending on your local weather, gardening during the winter may simply be less than the ideal, or you may be working with frozen soil, which can remain rock solid for several months. Regardless of the situation, winter offers any ambitious gardener an opportunity to explore many options that may not be available during the warmer seasons.
