If you’re looking for ways to maintain your garden all year round, there’s no need to get overwhelmed. My mom’s an avid gardener and loves it, but she doesn’t spend all winter out in it, fretting over a few weeds or dry soil. In fact, leaving your garden alone in the winter is not a bad idea. It can help the soil “do its thing” so to speak, so that when spring rolls around, it’s in its natural, preferred state for growth. If you’re an avid gardener, or just a newbie, read my tips below for some ways to maintain your garden all year. Most likely, it’s easier than you think and doesn’t require too much work.

Take them out of the pots and check out the bottoms. If you see mold, put it back and pick up another. Buying and planting moldy plants will ruin your soil, along with any other plants you plant with them. Plus, the actual moldy plant itself won't thrive and will eventually die.
