Queens Botanical Garden Horticulture and Compost team up to get the garden ready for the cool weather. The annuals have been removed and the perennials cut back. Now we will apply a method of no-till soil amending to enrich our soil for next year’s blooms. Learn how to prepare your annual plant beds by adding shredded leaves and compost. Participants will be helping us with the work—dress for the weather!
