Besides providing the right plants, and protecting your garden from pesticides, one of the next most valuable things you can do to support pollinators and other invertebrates is to provide them with the winter cover they need in the form of fall leaves and standing dead plant material. Frequently however, this is the hardest pill for gardeners to swallow.

So what does it mean to “leave the leaves”? How do leaves protect pollinators? Is composting the leaves ok? What about mulching? Can I use my leaf blower? Should I cut back my perennials or leave seed heads for the birds?

Come and discuss with Lakewood gardeners, Kelli Marko and Kristen De Lay. Get ideas, share experiences, and ask questions!
