How To Take Care Of Your Plants In Winter

by aditya abhishek

Winter Has Arrived

Summer has gone and winter has arrived, you must be thinking about which plants to grow and how to care for plants during winter.

Flowering Plants

In winter you can grow flowering plants such as rose, petunia, calendula, nasturtium, pansy, dahlia, phlox, chrysanthemum, cineraria, hollyhock, etc. 

Vegetable Plants

In winter you can grow vegetable plants such as cabbage, cauliflower, coriander, spinach, lettuce, radish, carrot, potato, pea, onion, tomato, capsicum, etc. 

Potting Mix

To grow flowers and vegetables in winter, you can prepare a potting mix with 20% soil + 20% cocopeat + 40% compost + 20% river sand + a handful of neem cake fertilizer. 


During chilling winters, most of your succulent, cactus, or perennial flowering plants such as hibiscus go under dormancy, therefore stop fertilizing this plant in winter. 


In winter you do not need to water frequently. Apply water only when the top layer of the soil becomes dry. There is no fixed frequency as local climatic conditions vary. 


Fertilize leafy vegetables with nitrogen-rich fertilizers like neem cake or teal leaf compost and flowering and fruiting plants with balanced fertilizers. 


To increase flowering in rose, pansy, petunia, phlox, chrysanthemum, etc. remove initial buds on the plant to promote new growth and buds for intense flowering.
