Tip of the Week: Snowfall
Posted on March 13 2017
Hey there all of you Garden of Eden fans out there and welcome to our latest edition of “Tip of the Week,” where we provide all of you some tips and tricks to keep your indoor flowers and outdoor gardens looking spectacular all the year through! This week, in regards to the impending storm, we are giving you tips on how to keep your garden going strong through the snow! Gardening in the snow may seem like a huge challenge, as the impending cold can kill off your plants. However, if snow looks likely in the forecast (like it is right now) then hold on to these simple tips to keep your garden going strong! First and foremost, try your best to refrain from using salt to get rid of the snow, as it can leach down into the soil, which can impact the plants that sprout later in the season. Instead, opt for shoveling the snow—just be sure to be careful around the garden, and try to get it off of your plants as soon as you can. In addition, if you have plants that have started to bloom due to the warm weather lately, then moving them inside or even to the garage may be in your best interest, as you can still keep them in a fairly cool environment without having the bitter cold kill them off for good. Snow can be good, but it may not be the best for your garden. The more you know, the better you will be when the snow finally hits the ground.
