In addition to creating a visually-appealing landscape, winter garden clean up also promotes powerful plant life in the South. While colder weather can be harsh on landscape plants, Georgia does not experience ground freeze, allowing for year-round gardening. Planting during the winter will bring big rewards come spring and summer. The garden experts at Pike Nurseries offer key benefits to planting in the winter:
Allows Plants Time to Establish
Because plants are dormant in the winter, they suffer less transplant shock when planted than if they were "awake" and actively growing. Plants in this condition will have time to acclimate and establish an early root system all through spring, so they are prepared for the summer heat.
Less Water Required
Dormant plants require significantly less water than when they are in active growth during other seasons. In addition, cooler temperatures and frequent rain in the winter translates to lower water bills. However, always remember that newly planted plants require a thorough initial watering – regardless of the season.
Pests and Plant Diseases are Dormant
Like the plants themselves, bugs and plant diseases are not active in cold weather. Planting during the winter removes the worry of pesky insects and unwanted mildew.
