  • Tackling some garden chores now improves health later

    There are many gardening tasks that either must be done or are better done in the fall of the year.  
    Removing old plant debris; fertilizing trees, shrubs and lawns; and protecting tender plants like hybrid tea roses and French hydrangeas.  
    These chores are all important for good garden maintenance. Taking care of them now can vastly improve the quality of your garden later. And eliminate some of the disease problems that affect us the most.
    Fall clean up in the yard and garden is under-emphasized.
