Autumn is typically when many of us put our gardens to bed by removing leaves and cutting back perennials. Yet, allowing fallen leaves, branches, stems, and seed heads to stay where they are rather than raking, blowing, shredding, or cutting them away will ensure our gardens are places for life to thrive. Anna Fialkoff will help you rethink your garden “clean up” this year and consider taking steps toward supporting essential pollinators, birds, and other wildlife through the cold winter months.
