How Your Garden Transforms Through the Seasons

I must admit I'm not a natural gardener, so when I see an infographic like this one below from Rattan Direct that has all this handy information to hand then I like to save it. 

My mother-in-law has a beautiful garden and it's amazing to see how it transforms throughout the seasons.



Gardens are of course for all four seasons (not just Summer!).

Like most people, you probably enjoy your garden most during the warmer months of summer. It makes perfect sense to do so but did you know, with a little knowledge of what each season brings, you could have an even better summer garden?

WINTER

Winter is the time the garden sleeps and with your help, it can sleep better. Move vulnerable plants and create homes for wildlife to shelter from the cold. Protect your soil with mulch and look forward to what spring has to offer.

SPRING

As the first buds of new life come to being, you can be confident finer, warmer weather is on its way. But the spring garden needs help. It needs moisture and fertiliser, and it needs protecting from night time frosts.

SUMMER

The nurtured garden will produce an abundant harvest of fruit and vegetables, as well as a bountiful display of colourful and fragrant flowers. Enjoy!

AUTUMN

Don’t abandon the garden just yet. There is still plenty of wildlife visiting and colour to enjoy before the grey of winter comes upon the garden and us. There are autumnal red leaves to admire and vegetable crops to bring in, from the parsnip to the carrots.

Do you enjoy your garden all year round?

    1. Gardens can be such peaceful places where people just relax and enjoy the scenery and the wildlife.
