As the weather turns cold, Carmen heads out to her garden to show you how to prep your garden for winter. She cuts back plants and puts down a shredded hardwood mulch to ensure weed-free, fertile soil come spring.
Then, she builds a container garden, or window box, to enjoy some texture and color during the long winter. (Hot tip: Adding insulation and landscape fabric for drainage to your planting box ensures your plants stay healthy in the coldest months!) Carmen shows her selection of winter-hardy plants and how to arrange them artistically for maximum enjoyment.
Next week, for Carmen’s final video of the year, she’ll show you how to bring the garden indoors!
