Fall Clean Up: To do or Not to Do?
“I leave everything in place every fall. I have occasionally worried about whether it will backfire on me and I will get diseases of some kind in my plants but so far have not had that problem. In fact, I even mow the leaves on the lawn and rake them into the flowerbeds as a way of composting and improving the soil.” – Conniepr
“I clean up my garden every fall. I usually start with the pond, moving the fish indoors. Then pick all the tomatoes and peppers and bag all the plants for the garbage. After the first frost I cut back and bag all the perennials. This coming week I will dig up the beets and carrots. I like to have everything cut back and clean before winter. In the spring I sit back and watch for the new growth to appear. I know spring has arrived when my butterwort pushes up its rocket shaped flower heads.” – Linda Melnyk
