We will give you some tips to take good care of our garden in the coldest months of winter.

Keep in mind that such low temperatures are a risk and one of the great enemies of many outdoor crops. If you want to enjoy your crops and develop healthy, today we leave you some tips.

The hours of light decrease, the cold wind blows, the night frosts and the rains can ruin the crop, for that reason something principal is to cultivate something that can develop well with the type of soil that we have and suitable for the climate of the place where you work.


In these cold days, the development of plants and vegetables slows down. Choosing crops such as cabbages, arugula, beans, peas, escaroles or leeks are very good options since they perform quite well on these dates. 

The idea is to plant in autumn, so we can pick them up in winter. If you want later you can add other crops, but you should always be in a sunny place so they will start off well and strong.

The wind and the frosts are two great agents that initiate the slowdown of your plants and vegetables. Try to add something or protect your crops from these two problems.

Sometimes you have to think if it is profitable to grow in a soil where the winter is especially raw. In this way, we can consider letting the earth rest during this time.

In December it is the ideal month to prepare the bacchanals thought for the springtime and we can prepare the land, pamper it for future crops. Take advantage to eliminate weeds and add compost, nourish the soil etc.

Another way to help the land and improve our crops considerably is to rotate the crops. So I mean not always plant the same in the same place. Varies the crops so that the land does not run out.

Avoid the appearance of pests, as far as possible, in this way it is good to cut the crop every so often so insects are left without food.

We try to give you some tips to make your winter crops last longer, as well as to protect them from certain factors. But remember that this is not a good time for them.
