  • Cooler temperatures, a touch of frost and some freezing overnight temperatures are all timely because it allows our plants to make the transition into dormancy.  
    Our winter chill is a bit early but it is inevitable; and predictions call for another memorable one. So, for our plants, the best scenario is to stay cool so they can do what they are supposed to do this time of the year.
    Temperature and day length are the primary factors that trigger dormancy and once plants are on track we can start doing some things to get the garden ready for winter.
