Putting Your Garden to Bed

pots and plants
 Putting the garden to bed means more than tidying up.  Join Nancy McDonald, Master Gardener to learn steps in preparing for the onset of winter.  We will discuss  What you can plant for the following season. 
  • Storing, moving, and dividing.  
  • Top-dressing beds, and making clean-up a minimum. 
  • Leaving things in place.  What you leave in place will help overwintering birds and insects and will also add winter interest.
