It is well into the fall season, and some days have already seen winter like temperatures, but there are still plenty of ways to take care of your garden this time of year. University of Illinois Extension Master Gardener Gwen Podeschi says now is the time to start preparing for spring.


Podeschi appeared as a guest on the Newstalk WTIM Morning Show. She says if you haven’t done your garden cleaning, there is still a little time.



Podeschi says now is the time to be planting bulbs for spring of 2018.



The annual Master Gardener classes are also coming up in January. Podeschi says for more information, you can call the Christian County Extension office at 287-7246.
