Tip # 1

Gardeners who have grown winter varieties of apples and put them in storage should remember that in January, under optimal conditions (temperature 1-0 °, relative humidity 60-70% and good ventilation), the shelf life of the following varieties ends: Antonovka ordinary, Autumn striped, Autumn joy, Cinnamon striped, Orange, Bessemyanka michurinskoe, Narodnoe, Lobo, Chelini, Mekintosh. It is necessary to monitor the condition of the fruits in order to avoid their mass spoilage, to maintain the storage regime of products without significant fluctuations that worsen its quality.

Tip # 2

On days when the temperature rises to 0 °, it is necessary to compact the wet snow around the boles of fruit trees. Through a dense layer of snow, mice cannot get to the tree and damage the bark.

Tip # 3

Around the area where the seedlings of fruit crops were dug in, the annular groove is periodically cleared of snow. If it has not been done since autumn, then, retreating 2-3 m from the digging site, a layer of snow is removed until the soil is exposed. Rodents cannot move around the open area, and the seedlings remain intact. The most reliable means of protecting the garden from hares is an iron mesh 1.8-2.0 m high along the perimeter of the garden.

Tip # 4

If the temperature is expected to drop to 35 °, it is necessary to cover the stems and the base of the skeletal branches with snow. The snow cone will reliably protect the covered part of the tree from damage by severe frosts. Berry and ornamental shrubs are also covered with snow. If there is little snow, it is collected from paths, from ditches, from the carriageway with a wooden, plywood or metal wide shovel. It is impossible to bare the soil under cultivated plants so that the roots do not freeze. The minimum layer of the remaining snow should be 12-15 cm.

Tip # 5

In January and February, many birds die from severe frosts and lack of food. Therefore, when visiting the garden, it is necessary to feed them, always laying out the food in the same place in the feeders, in which snow cannot accumulate. If feeding is carried out annually, then the birds prefer to nest in nearby places. Birds eagerly eat the seeds of watermelons, sunflowers, pumpkins, cucumbers, sorrel, elderberry, irgi and many other plants.

Tip # 6

In rural areas, heating of houses with wood and peat is widely used. Collecting ash, sifting it and storing it in dry form allows the gardener to accumulate fertilizer, which contains potassium, phosphorus, calcium. It is better to store ash in polyethylene or multilayer paper bags.

Tip # 7

It is recommended to pour the periodically accumulating slop into a compost heap, in which a deepening is made since autumn.

Tip # 8

At a temperature of -30 °, the hatch and vents in the basement or cellar are insulated with burlap or old rags. If the basement is in an open area, then snow is shoveled around it.

Tip # 9

The remaining fruits are sorted into storage. Boxes should not be brought into a room with room temperature. If the fruits of later periods of consumption begin to turn brown, they are removed from storage and used for compotes, added to vegetable salads, etc.

Council number 10

Snow accumulated on the roofs of garden houses and outbuildings is carefully dumped if fruit and ornamental shrubs grow nearby, since blocks of dense snow can break branches. In winter, on frosty days, the branches become especially brittle. To measure temperature, you need to have thermometers, which should be displayed outside and in storage. With warming and heavy snowfall, a lot of snow accumulates on the branches, which can be removed in order to avoid branch breakage with a long pole with a fork at the end, wrapped in burlap or foam rubber.

Council number 11

At the end of the month, if there were frosts below 35 °, several branches of an apple, pear, cherry, plum tree are cut off and put on growing, which makes it possible to clarify the varietal and breed response to severe frosts. The cut branches must be labeled with the variety name. The first day the branches are kept in the lower part in water at a temperature of 2-5 °, then they are transferred to room conditions. For less evaporation of moisture, all branches are covered with plastic wrap. After 18-25 days, the degree of damage to leaf and flower buds, as well as shoot wood, will be clearly visible.

Council number 12

In those areas of the garden where there is strong water erosion in spring, the snow should be cleared so that the soil is deeply frozen. Then the water will not erode it so actively. Subsequently, sodding is carried out in these places or branch flashes are arranged.
