Question of the Week: Dead Leaves


Q: Are dead leaves harmful to plants or soil?

A: They can be - if the dead leaves had disease or pests on them, and they stay near the base of your plant, it can provide protection for the disease/pests during the winter and cause the new growth to become infected as well. It's best to clear the leaves!
