The Most Important Gardening Task (In Winter)

Gardening shouldn’t stop just because it’s cold outside. Gardener Scott discusses important activities to do in winter to help ensure gardening success in summer.

Winter is also the best time of year to get your deciduous trees trimmed. The leaves have long since fallen off, so the shape and structure of the branches will be more visible, and they will weigh considerably less. When the arborist chips up the branches, keep the woodchips to use as mulch, which will protect your soil and any perennials you may have.
