Leave your winter yard a little 'wild'
Nov 12, 2017 6:00 AM - Q. I heard I should not cut down my perennials as it benefits wildlife. Is it true? A. Leaving your garden alone in fall is a great idea. As cold weather comes, wildlife is looking for places to call home for the winter. Lots of insects, frogs and other creatures are out in gardens overwintering in the leaf litter and twigs, and even in the top layer of soil.
