Even though most of the country is inside shivering from the winter weather, you'll be gardening in no time. One way to give plants a better chance to thrive in your garden is to plant them at night, not during the day. Since the sun is strongest during the day, freshly planted seedlings and other delicate plants could literally fry if you plant them during peak hours. By planting at night, you benefit from the chill of the air, and the water won't evaporate. Plant as the sun goes down to gain the positive effects of evening gardening.
