Tip of the Week: Halloween-Proofing Your Garden
Posted on October 30 2017
Hey there all of you Garden of Eden fans out there and welcome to our latest edition of “Tip of the Week,” where we provide all of you some tips and tricks to keep your indoor flowers and outdoor gardens looking spectacular all the year through! Since Halloween is tomorrow, we invite you to join us today as we give you some fast tips on how to care for your garden tomorrow! Halloween is a wonderful time of year, and no doubt gets us all ready for the impending holiday season. Before then, we hope that you are fully stocked with candy for all the trick-or-treaters, but while you’re hanging up those last spiderwebs on the porch, we encourage you to follow a few simple tips to protect your garden and plants from some innocent wanderers.
- Be sure to take any potted plants off of your porch, or move them clearly out of the way of the door. This shouldn’t be a main concern, but accidents and slips may happen, and it’d be best to move it to another spot where it won’t be a hazard to others.
- Rope off your garden. To make it festive, grab some festive “Crime Scene. Do Not Cross” tape from your local Halloween store, and put it up around the garden. That way, you are protecting your plants from plenty of shoes, while fully being in the Halloween spirit. To take it up a notch, if you have an inflatable spooky prop, putting it in the roped-off section may be a great idea to save space.
- Speaking of props, try to steer clear of using those stringy spider webs in your garden, as they can catch onto many leaves and cause an issue when you want to remove it. In addition, be sure to remove any fragile garden decorations that you would normally display—you can never be too careful.
