Tips of the Week
Protect your perennials with compost or mulch. I like compost a little better because it has a smaller aggregate to it, so fills the spaces above the soil and protects the roots a little better from the cold. Compost also adds nutrients as it leaches into your soil over winter.
Plant spring-blooming bulbs
Plant winter annuals
Continue cutting back perennials
