Maintaining Your Perennial Bed


Class 5
In this class you'll...

  • take your new garden through its first season
  • tackle spring clean-up
  • weed, mulch, and fertilize your way through summer
  • put your garden to bed in the fall

Let’s go through the seasons and look at what tasks should be done, and when.
