Freezing weather has put an end to the vegetable garden season for a lot of folks. If you’re one of them, then here’s a quick checklist of what you need to do to wrap up this gardening season and get ready for the next.
1) Remove all of the old plant debris. Most things can be put on the compost pile but it is best to just discard old tomato plants. They frequently harbor leaf disease that you don’t want around.
2) Add compost. If you make your own, great! If not, we have some great compost products that we would recommend.
3) Work the ground. Turning the ground over at this time of the year will not only help incorporate the compost you just added, but also open the ground up to better receive winter moisture and hopefully help knock down overwintering pest problems.
Our Fall Garden Compost Special is still going on! It will save you over 20% off the regular price of three of our best compost products and give you a great combination to help get your garden off to a great start in 2015!
