Gardening Tips from EcoCorps Program Director Jennifer Flynn
- It's now warm enough to begin cleaning up and deadheading plants. It's important to wait until temperatures warm to protect beneficial insects that winter in leaves and plant stalks (including preying mantises!).
- Construct a compost pile or bin, and add your dead yard materials to it. This will add valuable carbon to mix with your nitrogen-rich green veggie scraps and energize the decomposition cycle.
- Read about and build hugelkulture beds. These beds are great for downed woody debris and create beneficial habitats for microbes while also helping our very porous, sandy soils retain moisture.
- Check for invasive species to remove and plan for native plants to replace them.
