Garden Clean-up

Tags: , ,

A little gardening clean-up helps prevent problems by eliminating the places where insects and diseases linger from season to season. Practice these four habits of highly effective gardeners!

  1. Remove all spent plants as soon as they are finished producing.
  2. Don’t compost insect- or disease-infested plants. Bag them for the trash.
  3. Remove old mulch and replace with fresh each season.
  4. Some insects hide under old boards and other shelters. Eliminate any garden items that might provide a shelter from weather.
Don’t leave dead plants in the garden.
This garden is long past due for being cleaned up. Plants left in the garden too long can attract insects and diseases.
