While winters are the coziest time of the year to many of us, harkening the arrival of bright festivities among other niceties, they aren’t exactly the kindest on plants. Plants tend to shrivel up and succumb in winters, as everyone knows. However, you can evade the heartbreak of watching a beloved garden dry up in the winters by planting plants that can survive the winter.
