Gardeners in cold climates rely on different strategies to survive the chilly months between gardening seasons.
Some gardeners take their gardening indoors, turning their attention to hydroponics or house plants; others simply enjoy a few months of quiet reflection.
Freelance writer Teresa O’Connor, of Boise, Idaho, recently asked five gardeners in cold climates for their winter survival tips and shared the tips with readers on her Seasonal Wisdom blog.
In addition to my comments, Teresa included ideas from Amanda Thomsen, from Chicago, Kathy Purdy from upstate New York, Helen and Sarah Battersby from Toronto, and Lynn Felici-Gallant from New Hampshire.
Whether hitting the antique malls, keeping in shape, or spending time in an indoor garden conservatory, gardeners find creative ways to cope with the cold weather months.
