As fall advances and winter draws closer the days are growing shorter, the temperature continues to drop and your once vibrant garden is preparing to take a long winters nap. To the naked eye it might not look like there is a lot going on, but now is the perfect time to get a jump start on next year’s garden by preparing your beds for winter. Join Arapahoe County Master Gardener Coordinator, Lucinda Greene as she shares some suggestions for fall landscape care including which plants should be cut back, which plants provide crucial winter habitat for wildlife and when is the most important time to fertilize your lawn? This discussion will also include a look at the benefits of mulch and the importance of leaf and debris clean-up in controlling and preventing common garden diseases.

Program will take place in the classroom at the ‘Hudson Residence’ Business Office.
