Putting Your Garden to Bed
It’s the time of year when we need to prepare our gardens for fall and winter. Preparing now will make them healthy come springtime. Here are some tips you’ll want to consider:
· Plant flowering spring bulbs.
· Dig up and store your tender summer blooming bulbs.
· Plant flowers that are flowering now to fill in those empty spots in your garden.
· Plant trees and shrubs. Planting in the fall helps to eliminate transplant shock as they are in their dormant period.
· Cover your tender plants to keep them going for as long as possible.
· Cover your gardens in COMPOST for protection. The compost will act as a blanket during the cold winter months here in the Northeast.
