|Prune at the right time|
|Before you start pruning a bush, vine or tree, look up whether the plant blooms on old or new growth. This will determine when is the best time to prune to optimize blooms! You don't want to prune in the spring if your plant blooms on last year's growth.|

|A quick tip about compost|
|Compost, Compost, Compost! No need for a special bin (just find a corner somewhere in the yard away from the house) and pile leaves, bury food scraps (no dairy, no bones). Pile on another layer of leaves and let it bake. No need to even turn the pile, it will eventually decompose for wonderful compost.|

|A time saving tip|
|Keep a pair of gardening gloves and pruners near the back door of your house, so you can easily grab them when you are "only stepping outside for a minute." You KNOW you can't go out into the garden for even a minute without seeing something that needs weeded or pruned! |
