The temperatures are falling and many are preparing their gardens for the winter months. Andrew Holsinger, Horticulture Educator with the University of Illinois Extension Unit 18 says now is a great time to do some maintenance to your garden and tools to get a quick start in the spring.
Holsinger appeared as a guest on the Newstalk WTIM Morning Show and says now is the perfect time to give your gardening tools some attention.
Holsinger added that now is also a good time to have any blades sharpened. This prep work is done to ensure that you can get a quick start to your garden next year.
Holsinger says it takes time for your garden soil to adjust for the proper PH levels, which makes the winter months a good time to apply nutrients.
