Today on the farm will be busy trying to secure things and keep the leaf mold where it belongs. I am behind, but I am confident that a few extra minutes can get my landscape cloth down over the leaf mold. Trying to heal the soil from the last blooms is so important, and I do this by adding natural ingredients to the soil that boost the microorganisms and nutrients. The leaf mold is key. As it decays it will add what the soil needs, and help with weed suppression. So much work goes into the flowers, and many don’t realize that without these extra steps, the flowers would not be premium but weak and lanky with blooms that last just a few days.
