While you’re mak­ing plans and res­o­lu­tions for 2019, get some plants in the gar­den that will pay back your new-year ef­forts with flow­ers and fruit in au­tumn and win­ter. Avoid mak­ing new plant­ings on very hot or windy days and keep all new plant­ings well wa­tered and shel­tered on sub­se­quent hot days.
