With the arrival of Fall, you may be thinking that there really isn’t much to do in the garden except complete your harvest. But Fall is not a time to slack off and forget about gardening. On the contrary, it is a time to prepare your gardens and lawns for the Winter slumber they are about to undertake. There are a lot of great things that you can do now to encourage a strong growth in the Spring.
During the next week, we will be focusing on several of these items so that you are sure to have the best garden and lawn that you possibly can next Spring. We will discuss the reasons you need to do certain things now and I will even tell you how to do them. Some of the topics we will discuss will probably be familiar to you. But there may be a few surprises for you.
So don’t put up your garden gloves and tools just yet! We still have some work to do. And when we are done, I will even tell you how to take good care of your gardening tools so that they will last you for a longer period of time. Together, we can make the most of your investment in the garden.
For some of you, you may be thinking that after these discussions I am telling you about, that we will be done here at Her Gardening Blog until Spring. On the contrary…we will be here all Winter with lots of gardening advice. I will even offer some advice on Fresh Cut Christmas Trees. There are several houseplants that we can discuss and of course there are all of the seed catalogs, pre-Spring planning that needs to be done, seed starting and the list goes on and on.
But I am getting ahead of myself…we have some Fall projects that we need to complete first. So lets plan on getting our hands dirty just a little longer so that we can have the best lawns and gardens that we possibly can next Spring. After all, what you sow in your garden today will reap you great bounties tomorrow.
