Winter gardening can be challenging, but there are some simple hacks that can help your plants thrive in the colder months. One of the easiest ways to protect your plants from the cold is by creating a mini greenhouse using plastic bottles and 5-gallon water jugs.
To make a mini greenhouse, simply cut the bottom off a plastic bottle or water jug and place it over a seedling. This will create a warm, sheltered environment for your plant to grow in. If you want to create a larger greenhouse, you can use PVC pipes and plastic sheeting to make your own DIY greenhouse.
In addition to providing extra protection for your plants, a DIY greenhouse can also extend your growing season. Mulch can also help to retain moisture and protect your plants from the cold, so be sure to give your plants a little extra TLC during the winter.
