PicketFenceGreenhouse.info Hi Everyone, It's Diane What should you be doing in the fall months to help prepare for the cold winter months? Fall Cleanup can be a chore or you can think of it as fruit of your labors. The value and benefit to fall cleanup can and will be assure that all plants thriving in the next season. Raking Raking Leaves seems to be a ritual for everyone in the fall, or maybe you shred up the leaves with your mower then use as a nice mulch which will then break down and create some really nice organic matter, plus protection if placed around your plants. Raking as a child was such a fun time, never really remembered the work involved. Jumping in the leaves with your siblings and then to rake them up again in a pile, this went on and on. Mulching Leaves make a great mulch around your potted plants or perhaps around your newly planted perennials. Maybe you do a fall mulching with your desired wood mulch which is necessary on some perennials and shrubs to help assure their appearance again in the spring, that is if you live in a cold climate area, where all plants go dormant in the winter. Composting Maybe you just want to gather your leaves and place them in the compost bin. This works great too Why not! I say. Here is a tweet I seen from Birds and Blooms the other day.
