Garden Tips

Garden Tips For January 2020:

1).  Kitchen waste: fruit, eggshells, coffee grounds, vegetable scraps are excellent for composting.
2).  Do not remove snow or ice frozen on a plant. The removal could cause more damage to the plant.
3).  A full sun planting area is best for Blue spruce trees.
4).  Overripe fruit gives off ethylene gas which hastens nearby fruit to ripen.
5).  Water houseplants when the top 1 to 2 inches of soil feels dry.
6).  Native plants evolved with and support native pollinators.
