Gardening Tip of the Day

  • It's not much fun - that's why you avoided doing it last fall - but it pays to remove garden debris that can harbor insects and diseases to attack this years garden. Run leaves, sticks and plant stems through a shredder and add to the compost pile. If the pile heats up well (as much as 170 degrees), most of the insects, weeds and diseases should be eliminated.

    If you don't compost, use debris as mulch on unrelated plants. For example, don't put tomato debris back around tomatoes, peppers, eggplant or potatoes. It should be fine around bushes.

    You don't even need a grinder. Simply rake plant debris into rows and run a mulching lawn mower over it several times. This is also a great way to recycle leaves into the landscape as mulch.
