It’s now officially winter, and if you haven’t yet done your fall garden clean up, now’s the time.  Spending a little time now removing plant material that can harbor pests and disease, you can reduce the potential for them in your garden next spring. 

  • Remove all diseased or pest infested plants, weeds, and dying plant parts.
  • Dispose of the disease infested plant trimmings immediately; don’t add them to your compost pile.
  • Remove weeds to prevent their spread.
  • Remove other debris around the garden to prevent overwintering sites for insect pests.
  • Clean garden tools and equipment used in other areas to avoid introducing pathogens, nematodes, or weeds.
