Preparing Your Shrubs For Winter May Be Easier Than You Think!
It’s that time of the year again. It’s the time where you have to think about how to care for your shrubs for winter. But fret not, as it is not as complicated as you may think; the answer may be a simple as doing nothing!
Doing nothing may be the best thing for your shrubs this winter, that is, if you planted the best shrubs for your climate in the first place. If you selected a suitable plant for your USDA growing zone (don’t know your zone, find out here), then your plant should be plenty hardy enough to survive winter on its own. Still, if you’re looking for your shrubs to thrive and not just survive winter, we have curated four easy tips to help you winterize your shrubs.
Our Tips For Preparing Your Shrubs For Winter
