If you’re like me, you love your garden and plants, even if some don’t always love you back (looking at you, heirloom tomatoes), and work hard to give them attention. But come fall, the rules change for cold-weather gardening:
• Bring in any tropical plants when it gets colder (varies by “zone”). View this map to find out your climate region.
• Keep an eye on the forecast and consider a “mini greenhouse.”
• Only water plants when soil appears dry.
• If you’re using a heater more, indoor plants will need some added humidity (like your skin often does in the winter).
