In this one-hour talk, we'll review why fallen leaves, sticks, and dead-headed flowers are important to wildlife and soil fertility. Then we’ll look at some of the practical concerns that arise when we keep autumn materials on home or community properties. How can careful plant selection, plant care, timing, and good landscape design help us to keep properties attractive at the same time as we practice good stewardship? This talk is accompanied by an extensive reference document.
Sponsored by the Lincoln, MA, Garden Club at Bemis Hall, 15 Bedford Road, Lincoln, MA.
