Leave the Leaves! How Leaf Litter Benefits Your Garden

When most people think of litter, their train of thought will normally lead to papers, aluminum cans, and packaging materials that we often see strewn along the roadside or in gutters. Many gardeners and landscapers use the term “leaf litter” to describe the deep layers of leaves that coat our lawns and drift on the wind through the streets. Unlike the throwaway litter we often see, leaf litter offers many benefits that will actually help the environment and support your soil and plants.

How Fall Planting Can Jumpstart Your Spring Gardening

Most gardeners are inclined to plant their gardens in the spring. The practice has been passed down through generations in families and is also encouraged by some gardening experts and seedling suppliers.

Spotted Lanternfly Update: What You Need To Know

Invasive species are a serious problem impacting rural and urban landscapes throughout the country.

They can effectively compete with, crowd, out, or kill native species changing habitats forever. On the East Coast, the spotted lanternfly is an invasive species that is again making headlines. New Jersey and Pennsylvania have placed dozens of counties (34 in Pennsylvania, 13 in New Jersey) under agricultural quarantine due to infestation.

Summer in the Garden: 9 Favorites to Plant in July/August

July and August are better known for harvesting than planting. Carrots, celery, garlic, onions, potatoes, beans, corn, cucumbers, and eggplant are just a few of the many warm and cool weather crops that can be harvested around this time. But summer can be for planting, too! No matter whether you grow vegetables or flowers in your garden, July and August offer plenty of opportunity. Heat-loving vegetables tend to be robust, hardy, and easy to care for. Throughout the hotter part of the year, there are fewer plants that need to be started under grow lights to flourish. In fact, there’s something for just about every taste when it comes to sowing seeds outside in summer. Let’s take a closer look
