UW Botanic Gardens, Gardening with the Seasons: Winter – Jan 18

Though it seems there isn’t much to do in the garden over winter, dormant season tasks can set the stage for a good gardening year.  When weather keeps us indoors, we can plan ahead for tasks and garden changes to be done in the months ahead.  When the weather is nice enough to spend time outdoors, it can be amazing how much we can actually take care of now.  This session will cover dormant season pruning and transplanting for specific plant types, winter weeding and garden care, best tools and practices, and planning ahead for the new growing season.

Cost: $20

About this series:
Plants and gardens don’t live by the written calendar, but by the seasonal cycles and cues of changes in daylight, temperature, and moisture.  When gardeners become acquainted with the seasonal rhythms and life cycles in the garden, and learn to work in sync with nature, caring for the garden becomes more of a process and less of a battle with potential garden enemies. This series will help beginning and seasoned gardeners learn how to capitalize on optimal timing and sustainable practices to have a great garden all year long.
