Winter Digging

Winter Digging

1)     Breaks the soil up and relieves compaction

2)     allows air to enter the soil.  In other words, aerates the soil

3)     Ensures annual weeds are buried and killed

4)     Exposes pests to natural predators

5)     Exposes rough soil to winter frosts which break it down

6)     Helps to improve drainage

8)     Loosens top layer of soil which facilities planting crops

9)     Allows plant roots easier passage through the soil

During winter digging compost can be dug into the soil to ensure great growth in vegetable patches, beds or borders in preparation for the next growing season.
