Fall is the time to spring into gardening! Many gardeners actually believe that fall is a better time than spring to garden. The soil is warm and easy to work, there’s less intense sunlight and regular rain.
Fall gardening activities:
- Add compost to soil
- Apply organic fertilizer
- Plant spring flowering bulbs
- Design and dig new gardens
- Remove weeds
- Divide and plant perennials
- Rake leaves from your lawn before they become matted and can suffocate and kill lawns
