1st winter for Queen

salter6826October 24, 2007

I have had my Queen for about 8 months. Its in the ground in a location that gets sun till about 4 or 5pm.

Is there anything I need to get it ready for the winter season?

How much does it need to be watered in the winter?

Thanks!!

In zone 8 no winter protection or preparation is necessary. Watering during winter is dependent on the amount of normal precipitation you receive - here in the PNW zone 8, it's pretty darn rare that any outdoor plant would need supplemental watering in winter unless under eaves or some other sort of cover. In drier climates, I'd check periodically and water when soil is dry to ~4".
