Frost Kills, Snow Protects

Snow never comes alone. Frost is a common thing for snowy winters so you better take care of the plants that don’t do well in frost and require some winter weather protection.

When snow is new and fresh it is fluffy and light. But once the tempurate rises it can quickly become a problem that takes toll on evergreens and shrubs causing them to break or change shape.

Snow Sow Seeds

Use a small handmade greenhouses to sow the seeds. Bring them outdoors and wait as they freeze and thaw and later grow into seedlings, which you then can replant in your garden.
