so what do keen gardeners DO over the winter .. is there anything that can be done? Is there anything that will actually grow in winter? I'd like to give it a try but everything seems to be going into dormancy mode now and i am guessing that it won't return from that till late March at the earliest.
I heard a bird cry, sharp and free. My name is Jordan.
Sweep leaves. Sweep more leaves. Cut back brown stuff on dead plants. Possibly a bonfire of the aforementioned if there is a dry day between now and spring*. Otherwise pile it all up and wait for it to compost.
