Bettylou Sandy from Bettylou's Garden is back with us to talk about fall cleanup and putting our gardens and winter gardening. We covered a lot of information so I've divided the interview into two parts. This is Part 2 fall cleanup, starting a winter garden, growing food indoors, lawn care, shrubs, tree care how to start a community garden.
Bettylou is a treasure trove of information - so make sure you grab a notebook and take notes, or better yet - hop over to our website and download her handouts and follow along.
At the end of the interview, I’ll also have the list of her upcoming videos she is scheduled to do on the Spruce Street Community Garden Facebook Page.
She also answered the question about fertilizing your plants during the winter. What do you think she said?
Make sure you check out the show notes and download her documents. Also, go over to all her Facebook links and say hello to her! Send her some Love!
If you’re want to catch her gardening videos she will be posting them on the Spruce Street Community Garden Facebook page. Links will be in the show notes.
Katie and I have been busy painting pictures for our next activity book Counting Fall Leaves. We have 3 other books completed and are being reviewed by our Editor. They should be available by the end of the month or early November.
