It’s time to cover all of those open spaces in your garden and landscape with two inches of WM EarthCare™ Homegrown Compost.

Add spring color to open patches and raised beds by spreading a mix of wildflower seeds over the compost and water-in lightly. Winter rains will soon take over watering your seeds and help your wildflower garden flourish. The wildflowers make great cut flower bouquets as well as attract a variety of pollinators.

As an alternative to wildflowers, plant a green manure cover crop of clover, vetch, peas or other nitrogen-fixing legumes that you can turn under or mulch in spring. You’ll be building structure and adding essential nitrogen to the soil that will quickly be utilized by spring plantings.

Remember to always keep your soil covered.
