Snow - it's a good thing!

No one, but NO ONE, misses summer more than me! Winter, wind and snow are, as far as I'm concerned, the unholy trinity. But snow - and we're getting lots of it this winter - is a good thing for the garden.

Snow helps protect plants from freeze-thaw damage.

In fact, flower bulbs and garden root crops are best tucked under an insulating layer of snow. And the added moisture when the snow melts is good for plants.

So snow makes a great "mulch" for the garden!
