Gardening Tip of the Day

  • To reduce spring yard chores, and minimize pest and disease problems next season, make one last yard cleanup. Rake up dead bark, rotting plants, tall weeds, sticks and other debris that can harbor pest insect eggs, pathogens, or rodents. After the ground freezes, spread a 3-inch winter mulch over any bare soil in beds and around trees and shrubs.
