Richard Hentschel Host of Green side up talks about changes in the weather and how to plan for outdoor landscape and gardening activities. Lawn care can be a big portion of what we are taking care of. Fertilization, top dressing, overseeding can be part of that. Fall weed control allows the grasses to grow and fill in the bare spots. Vegetable and perennial beds can benefit from an application of organic matter. Keep the weed seed heads from dropping seeds in the beds to lesson the weed pressure next year.
Green Side Up is a weekly gardening program produced by University of Illinois Extension. It is hosted by Richard Hentschel, Extension Educator, Horticulture.
