In the Garden: Don’t be stingy with mulch, but use it wisely

Mulching is a year-round project. Traditionally, we apply mulch in the fall to protect roots from frost heaving. Now, it is done to protect plants from drying out. Our weather has changed in the last 25 years; we receive less precipitation in the winter.

In the Garden: The right steps for reblooming orchids
