December is only 10 days away! It might not feel that cold yet, but winter will be here before we know it. Lawns will be dormant, and most plants won’t be in bloom, but you can still use your green thumb. Today we’re looking ahead to give you some ideas for what to do for your garden in winter.

If you still want to take care of plants, you can always start an indoor herb garden. Set up some pots on your windowsill and plant herbs of your choice. Most herbs are low maintenance and take up little space.

You could also plan for the future. Start a journal to jot down ideas for your spring garden, and research how to care for any new plants you’re thinking about.

Winter is also a good time to take care of your tools and upgrade any that might have some wear and tear. You can also go ahead and buy new pots or seeds in advance!

Lastly, you can compost at any time of the year. Composting is recycling organic materials instead of throwing them away. You can compost fruits/veggies, eggshells, leaves/grass clippings, paper, cardboard, and more. Once your compost has fully decayed, it can be added to soil to feed your plants.

We hope these gave you some ideas to look forward to during winter. If you have any questions or suggestions, please let us know!
