What To Do in the Garden on a Frosty Day

Birch Trees in WinterWhat To Do in the Garden on a Frosty Day

 

You can do lots of things in the garden on a frosty day, but there are lots of things you must not do! Dress for the occasion to keep warm.

 

  • Don’t walk on frosted grass
  • Don’t dig the soil if frosted
  • Don’t be tempted to top dress if ground is frozen
  • Don’t be tempted to plant anything in frosty weather

What you can do:-

  • Sharpen tools including hoes and spades
  • Wipe tools with an oily rag
  • Treat fences with a preservative
  • Prune overgrown deciduous shrubs to keep them in shape
  • Make sure your pots and seed trays are ready for the spring by washing
  • Get the latest seed catalogues and browse
  • Move tender container plants close to a house wall
  • Don’t forget the birds, top up feeders and provide water

And finally if you want to visit a winter garden why not go to Anglsey Abbey a National Trust garden in Cambridgshire. The photo above is from that garden.

Happy Gardening
