11 Simple Ways To Prepare Your Home Garden For Fall & Winter

6. Herb Containers

If you have herbs growing in containers, they’re probably starting to look pretty shabby now, so either harvest and dry them for use, or move them indoors in a place that gets a lot of natural light.

7. Prepare Any Perennials

When the temperature begins to dip to about freezing, it’s time to cut the stems on any perennials you have to within an inch or two of the ground. It’s a must to dispose of the cuttings, as like that dead vegetation you tossed out, cuttings can also harbor disease that can survive the winter and return in the spring. Mulch the soil around the plants as the weather gets chillier to help keep the roots cold so that they don’t end up freezing and thawing multiple times, which can cause damage.
