Preparing the Shade Garden for Winter

There are a few simple, yet very important chores you can do right now in your garden to ensure that you have a great start to the next growing season. Removing summer annuals, trimming perennial foliage, removing or dividing perennials that have outgrown their space, laying down a nice blanket of compost, and then topping the entire area with a nice thick layer of mulch will all ensure that you have a happy and healthy garden come next Spring. Join me as I prepare my shade garden for the upcoming winter months and walk you through the process.
