The myth surrounding winter garden

It’s the myth that plagues gardeners up and down the country. Days are shorter and leaves have fallen from trees.

Wait, what?!

This is when the gardener shifts to dreaming mode.

You dream of your garden every night, envisioning the bright colours and textures and green of your summer paradise. You consider heading south for a vacation, not just for the warmth and sun but just to see some incredible tropical plants and green things. You start thinking about moving to some place where you can garden year-round…

No matter where we garden, we all have a bit of zone envy – the itch to grow something not suited to the heat, cold, moisture or dryness of our region. Gardeners in the North want tender tropical plants to survive their cold winters, while Southern gardeners try to grow plants that need more of a chill than their mild winters provide. But the desire doesn’t end there. Pick any growing condition that limits plant selection, and I bet you’ll find a gardener trying to grow outside the lines.
