Winter is a season that can prove to be merciless towards us lovers of the green: the green thumb, in fact, particularly suffers the chilblains of this period of the year denoted by intense cold. Cultivating the passion for the green is not simple: first of all because many plants can not grow in the cold months, and then because the weather conditions make it impossible objectively to care for your garden. However, the last word is not said: we can create a nice green corner at home. Interesting opportunity also from a design and furnishing point of view.
For the outside of my entratina, where there is no shortage of flowers in winter or in summer, I do my shopping twice a year (both to contain costs and for time matters):
- in spring, buying flowers that can withstand, more or less, until the end of summer
- in the fall, buying plants that arrive until the month of March
Over the years, I have experimented with various plants, discovering those most suitable for my corner, in relation to solar exposure, air currents and humidity. Now I know what “risk” when I choose some flowers and what is really resistant.
