Perennial Protection: Mulch in the fall

It may seem counterintuitive, but fall is the best time of year to mulch your perennial beds.

People often wait to mulch until spring to help spruce up a garden that hasn’t recovered fully from a tough winter. But mulching during the spring, when tender shoots are just poking up from the newly thawed ground, can hurt your young plants.

Mulching in the fall, on the other hand, is an ideal time because there isn’t any new growth to get trampled, and the mulch can serve as a nice warm blanket for your plants as we head into winter.
