Use the last of the season’s leaves as a natural mulch to enrich soil, conserve moisture and protect plants against changes in soil temperature.

That’s just one of the tips you’ll get in the article on what you should do this month in the garden, part of this month’s issue of WNY Gardening Matters, which is  produced by the Cornell Cooperative Extension Master Gardeners in Erie County.

You can also find out about an invasive plant called wineberry. A third article discusses scale insects, which are fascinating creatures but can damage your plants.

    Leaves are great mulch. I do use a mulching mower to grind them up though. Much faster decomposition.
