The Manic Gardener – Fall Garden Tasks

Wondering how to put your garden to bed for the winter? Even if you’re not, it’s worth tuning in to hear Linda Chalker-Scott, former science editor of Master Gardener, reveal the most common autumn gardening mistakes she’s encountered. If you are in the midst of fall garden tasks, learn whether mulching makes a difference, why you should keep watering and fertilizing through the fall, and whether it’s worth wrapping your trees. This lively conversation with Linda will tell you how to treat your garden this autumn so that it will come back strong and beautiful next spring. But there’s more: she doesn’t just give advice; she explains why.

The weekly garden tip will give you an inexpensive and easy way to extend the season for your vegetable garden. And meet Susan Elsass, whose seed envelopes make the gift of seeds lovely as well as useful.
