What does putting your garden to bed mean to you? What practices do you employ? Are they eco-friendly?
An “eco-friendly” garden or landscape is about working with nature, not against it. How and what you do in the fall to put your garden to bed impacts the health of your gardens and landscape in the following growing season. Doing a big fall clean up may not be as necessary as you once thought. You can actually do less in your yard and let nature work for you. Amy Witt will provide eco-friendly fall gardening tips and ideas that will benefit your gardens and sustain pollinators, beneficial insects, and other critters through the colder months all while helping get your gardens ready for the next growing season.
