Needles-n-Pins Stitcheries: Wintering Plants and Gardens

Now that fall is here and some of us need to get our gardens and flowers ready for old man winter, I thought I would share some ideas on how to get those gardens ready for the winter season and bring some of those plants inside.

Many people talk about bring their geraniums inside for the winter. I don't have any geraniums, but several people I know do bring them inside. The Weekend Gardner has the information for you to do this. 

Now many of you have vegetable and flower gardens over the summer that need to get ready for the long sleep ahead. The Farmers Almanac has some really good tips for this. 

Most of us in the north country have greenhouse for our growing of vegetable. If you are one of these people here is some ideas from Experimental Homesteader on getting your greenhouse ready for the winter.

Last but not least....let's not forget your lawn. In order for your lawn to make it through the winter and be ready for the spring there are a few things that will help it make it through the winter that you can do and Do It Yourself has all the tips for you.

So whether you have vegetable garden, flowers or lawns all these need to be prepared for the winter. I don't know if I am quite ready to be talking winter here tho.........I think I will enjoy more of the fall for now. 

Happy gardening!
