You need to properly tend to your gardens after the growing season to ensure that they are ready to plant again next spring. Raking leaves is just the start of it all. Proper removal of plants and pests before the fall and cold take a little more effort then your probably use to. Pruning also plays an important role in getting your garden ready for the winter and following spring. The article below will take you through some of the important steps that you should check off your list this fall. You will be surprised how much easier this fall cleanup will make your life in the spring.
Fall garden cleanup can make spring gardening a treat instead of a chore. Garden clean up can also prevent pests, weed seeds and diseases from overwintering and causing problems when temperatures warm. Cleaning out the garden for winter also allows you to spend more time on the fun aspects of gardening in spring and provides a clean slate for perennials and vegetables to grow.
