Late Winter Gardening Tasks

Late Winter Gardening Tasks

Late Winter Gardening Tasks – In favorable areas late winter can be almost spring-like, especially in a mild period, but don’t be lulled into sowing and planting outdoors too soon. If the weather turns cold, seeds will not germinate, and seedlings and plants may receive such a check to their growth that they do not do as well as those sown or planted later. Concentrate your efforts on indoor sowing, but make the most of frames and cloches, too, for early crops.

One way of getting plants off to an early start (tomatoes and lettuces, for example) is to sow them in small plastic containers, clearly labelled, in a heated greenhouse. This means that when the spring temperatures do pick up, they can be moved outside, under cloches especially at night when the temperatures can suddenly drop.

Growing herbs in this way is just as comfortable as growing them in an outdoor garden. The same requirements are needed for growing an indoor garden as is for an outdoor garden.

When you get right down to it, all plants need three basic requirements to grow successfully; and they are sunlight, soil and water. Herbs are no different.

Urban Gardening Concept – Living in an urban environment or having just a patio or deck doesn’t mean you can’t be a gardener. Container gardens can give you the same sense of accomplishment and your vine ripe tomatoes will taste just as good as those from a backyard plot. Urban gardening requires planning and organization in a way backyard gardening does not. But that is part of the fun.

First, watch the space where your containers will go over several months. How much sun does the area get? Which way does the sun move?
