5 things your garden, lawn needs after it rains

With all the rain Indy has seen lately, you may be wondering what that means for your garden. Here are 5 things Carrie Petty, Master Gardener, say you should be doing for your garden right now.

  1. Never mow when it’s wet, always wait for the sun and wind to dry it out.

2. Weeds are easiest to pull after a rain but don’t spill the seeds onto the ground, or they will reseed.

3. Treat lawns now for dandelions.

4. Deadhead your Mums when blooms fade for continued abundance 5. Bring in herbs to dry for use in the fall for stews and roast chicken!
