How to keep a green thumb in the winter

Maryland

In the cold winter season, it’s not easy to keep a green thumb.

Maryland State University’s Extension office for Master Gardeners say, people that love to garden can still keep up with the activity with the right tools.

Horticulture educators say gardening is something you can do in the harsh winter season even if it’s not always hands on.

Gardening doesn’t just take place outside, there are plants like orchids that can be grown inside with little maintenance and last for years.

Annette Cormany, a Horticulture educator for Maryland State University says, “plan your gardens, you can look through catalogs, you can start seeds in-doors, so there’s lots of ways you can do planning for the year. Hands on in the winter is pruning, people can get out and walk around their landscape and notice trees and shrubs that might need a haircut.”

The Master Gardners extension office says anyone is welcome to come to them and learn more.
