Tips From Richard: Till Garden Cover Crop

Fri, 02/20/2015 - 9:23am -- WCVE

Till your garden cover crop into the soil. Fall planted cover crops have done their job of preventing erosion and need to be incorporated into the soil at least two weeks before you begin planting your early season crops. These cover crops can dramatically increase the valuable organic matter in your garden soil.
