7. When is the best time to prune a tree?

8. How often should I fertilize my trees? 

We recommend you deep-root fertilize your trees every 2 to 3 years. However, trees that are not in good health may need to be fertilized more frequently.

9. What is Mulch?

Mulch is any type of material that is spread or laid over the surface of the soil as a covering. It is used to retain moisture in the soil, suppress weeds, keep the soil cool and make the garden bed look more attractive. Organic mulches also help improve the soil's fertility, as they decompose.

Organic Mulch: Examples of organic mulches include: •Bark, Shredded or Chipped •Compost •Composted Manure •Grass Clippings •Newspaper •Shredded Leaves •Straw

•Compost and Composted Manure can be used anywhere, as long as they are relatively well composted and weed free. You can use them as a coating of mulch or simply side dress plants with them during the growing season, to insulate and give a boost of slow released nutrients.

•Grass Clippings are a mixed bag and are best suited to remote areas of your garden where you basically want to suppress weeds. Grass clippings, like most green plant debris with a high water content, decompose very rapidly and in the process they can get somewhat slimy, with an unpleasant odor - so use with discretion.

Ideally you should use a mulching mower and leave the clippings on the lawn to add fertility to that soil. However if you do bag your grass clippings, don't throw them away unless you have used weed killer or some other pesticide on your lawn. But untreated grass clippings can either be dumped into your compost bin or used to mulch open, unplanted areas.

•Newspaper as mulch is becoming more and more popular. Most newspapers have switched over to organic dyes, especially for their black & white sections. They are also great for smothering existing grass, to jump start a new garden bed.

To use as a mulch in the garden, spread a layer of 4 - 8 sheets of newspaper around the plants. Moisten the sheets to keep them in place. On windy days it's easier to moisten the sheets before you place them down. Cover the newspaper with a 1-3 inch layer of another organic mulch and the weed protection should last throughout the growing season.

•Shredded Leaves are natures favorite mulch. Shredded leaves can be used as mulch anywhere and have the added bonus of being free.
