Tips From Richard: Plant Fall Bulbs

Tue, 10/07/2014 - 1:52pm -- WCVE

Daffodils, crocus and tulips are among the most popular bulbs to plant in early October.

Tips From Richard: Compost Your Leaves

Tue, 09/23/2014 - 2:04pm -- WCVE

As leaves start to fall, consider using them as mulch or starting a compost pile. Leaves are the natural mulch that blankets the ground in our forests insulating tree roots and preventing erosion. However, if contained and allowed to decompose, they produce a wonderful soil amendment called compost.
