Tips to protect your plants from the cold
- Conifers: robust trees par excellence
By definition, conifers are trees that bear their seeds in cones and whose leaves are evergreen (like pines, firs or cedars). Thanks to their particular structure, they can survive difficult winter conditions.
- Evergreen shrubs: a touch of color all year round
Some shrubs, such as laurel, rhododendron or camellia, keep their leaves even in winter and can withstand low temperatures. They offer a touch of color in your garden all year round.
- Hardy perennials: for a flowering garden even in winter
Hardy perennials are plants that survive the cold weather thanks to their strong root systems. Among these, we find heather, hellebore or cyclamen. They allow you to have a flowering garden even during the coldest months.
- Winter flowering bulbs: an explosion of color despite the cold
Some bulbous plants, such as crocuses, hyacinths or daffodils, are able to bloom despite the cold. Plant them in the fall to enjoy their winter blooms.
- Frost-resistant vines: verticality and elegance
To add a touch of elegance to your garden, opt for cold-resistant climbers such as ivy and clematis-jasmine. These plants add a touch of verticality and can be used to cover a wall or fence.
- Tips to protect your plants from the cold
To help your plants withstand the cold, consider protecting them in winter by covering them with mulch, straw or winter covers. Also, make sure to give them the proper care and choose appropriate locations according to their needs.
