Winter: What gardeners notice and what they can do when it's coldest

These ensemble editions of our What's Up! and Grow newsletters were written for Winter. They address what people see in Winter as well as what they could be doing then to have a more beautiful, productive, easy-care garden.

  • It's Winter when the days are the coldest and shortest of the year
  • In many places in North America, that's in January and early February.
