Rather than getting upset about the frosty temperatures and the lack of sun, you should take the winter months as an opportunity to plan new projects for your garden. In winter, all the plants retreat back into the ground and you have the great chance to see your garden in its most exposed way.
This is a great way to think about the structure of the garden because a winter garden will give you a better idea about lines, directions and dimensions. Planning during the winter will also make the cold months pass by quicker because you will have something exciting to look forward to in the months to come.
Here are a few things that you should think about during the winter in order to make full use of your garden all year round.
