There is a belief that plants don’t need to be watered during the winter, but in some cases, that is incorrect. The cold winter temperatures are not the only problem for your plants, the lack of moisture in cold winter air along with drying winter winds can strip your plants of moisture. It may seem as though plants can get plenty of moisture from snow and ice that is abundant in the winter, but this is not the case. Frozen water is in the wrong physical state for plants to absorb, so even though plants are dormant and don’t need as much water in winter, they still need some moisture. Watering, as weather allows, is an important part of keeping your dormant plants healthy through the winter.
