PRO GARDENING TIP: FALL-WINTER MULCHING
Many of us add compost to our vegetable gardens during the Spring planting season. Savvy gardeners compost after garden cleanup for even better results. Over the Winter, our abundant rain packs down exposed soil and washes away nutrients. A layer of compost is a breathable cover of organic material that protects and nourishes garden beds, giving our vegetables a head start when we’re ready to plant.
- After Fall garden clean-up, till your soil
- Cover beds with 4-6” of Skagit Soils compost
- Let sit through the winter
- Two weeks prior to planting, till in compost
- Plant your vegetables!
