11 Sep Fall time is a great time to apply fertilizer in beds and lay plastic.
The fall time brings soils that are usually more fit to till and get a start on spring work.
Applying fertilizer in the fall and laying plastic over beds will keep the nutrients from washing away.
Through the fall and winter months, fertility will break down and be more available to growing plants next year. By doing this application in the fall, growers don’t have to worry about adverse weather conditions in the spring.
