It is important to prepare your soil in the fall while the ground is still warm and workable. This preparation will greatly reduce the amount of effort you will have to put forth this spring. Whether you’re preparing a field or a tiny garden in your backyard, here are a few simple steps to follow:
- Dig out the roots of problem weeds.
- Spread our NuLeaf® Organic Compost evenly over the area.
- Incorporate the NuLeaf® into the existing soil to help relieve compaction, increase oxygen and improve drainage.
Come spring, you’ll be surprised at how much easier it will be to plant your vegetables and flowers with properly prepared soil. This means more free time to enjoy the beautiful spring weather.

Colder weather doesn’t have to mean the end of the container gardening season. Utilizing pansies, ornamental grasses, ivy, and garden mums to dress containers can provide enjoyable gardening throughout the cooler months ahead. Due to the cooler weather, the containers will not have to be watered as much as your summer plants, which means more time to enjoy the scenery. Many plants can still be enjoyed well into the winter months.To get your containers ready stop by Seaside Mulch and try our Parker Organics Potting Mix™.
Make sure your container has good drainage. Fill the container about 1/3 full with Parker Organics Potting Mix™.
Loosen the root ball of the plant and place in the container. Continue filling with Parker Organics. Water the planting and allow it to drain.
