Cold weather could help your plants

Posted:

The cold weather that has lingered here in Michiana could actually help your plants.

Gardeners say that because of the cold there is more moisture in the soil.

And richer soil leads to healthier plants.

"The more snow we get, the more cloudy days we have, the rain we have is actually replenishing the soil moisture which is gonna benefit our plants, not only in the spring and they'll have more to drink in the hot dry summer that is ahead of us," says Steve Kruse a Master Gardener.
