A Fall Gardening Tip from NYRP’s Horticulturist Greg Kramer
Prepare your plants for the winter by cleaning debris, leaves, and branches from the surrounding soil. More adventurous gardeners can use leaves and branches to make compost, but some leaves from trees like the Apple and London Plane may contain a fungus that can be transferred to new leaves when they sprout in the spring. After cleaning the soil of debris, add a fresh 2-3 inch layer of mulch to create a protective bed for your plants and watch them bloom in spring.
