  • There are many gardening tasks that must be done or are better done in the fall of the year.  Things like cleaning up old plant material; fertilizing trees, shrubs and lawns; and protecting tender plants like hybrid tea roses and French hydrangeas.  These chores are all a part of garden maintenance and taking care of them now will improve the quality of your garden later.  Here’s a checklist to remind you of what needs to be done to get the garden ready for winter:
