Prepare your houseplants for winter. Many of us like to give our indoor houseplants a summer vacation outside, but the summer break is about to end. It’s time to bring those plants back inside. During the summer you might have found that your plants grew a lot, and errant branches are in need of a little
one; otherwise top growth may be retarded while the roots try to fill up the extra space.Clean the leaves of dust and dirt that gathered during the summer. This covering can interfere with a plant’s ability to turn light into food. A gentle spray from the garden hose and a light wipe with a sponge are
plants where they will receive as much natural light as possible. When you water them, do so thoroughly but less often in winter than you did in the summer.
