Now that we're heading towards winter, you maybe worried that your plants won't do so well on those cold nights. This tip will help keep them comfortable during the day and warm at night, and all you need is a few buckets of water.
The trick is simple: just place some buckets near the plants you want to keep warm, and fill them with warm water. Over the course of the day, the water will be warmed (or stay warm) by the sun, assuming your garden gets good sunlight (which we hope it does!) and after the sun goes down, the buckets of water will slowly cool over the course of the evening, radiating heat so your plants to stay nice and toasty as the air temperature drops.
Easy, simple, and your garden will thank you. Have you used this trick in your garden, or do you have a different method to keep your fledgling plants comfortable during those winter nights? Let's hear them in the comments below.
