The first thing that you should do before spring starts in earnest is prepare your garden for winter by starting to water your winter plants. This should be done two weeks before your plants actually begin to die off. The reason that you want to wait two weeks before dying them off is so that the soil will be more than enough for your plants to survive in. Most people will start watering their plants a week or two before they actually begin to die. This is a good rule of thumb and can help you get your garden winter ready.

Once you have completed the steps above, the last thing that you will want to do is to plant anything in your garden. The reason that you want to wait until spring to plant anything in your garden is so that the soil can really go to work in preparing your garden for the spring and summer months. With this in mind you should take out all of your seeds from the ones that are going to survive in your garden. Then you can start placing these seeds back in your garden next year when they are ready to start to grow again.
