kitchen scraps, part 2...
In response to my question back in June, I was told that digging "kitchen scraps" into the ground greatly benefitted the soil. So I have been doing this on a regular basis. I'm wondering how late in the fall/winter should I continue this practice in areas where I plan to plant perennial flowers next spring/summer?
I've also dug a lot of these scraps into the soil between existing perennials (which was suggested). A neighbor (not a very kind one) asked why I was doing this. He said he could understand improving the soil in bare areas where I planned to plant, but didn't see much benefit in doing this between existing plants. My response, although I wasn't totally sure that I was right, was that improving the soil between the perennials would improve the soil's structure, allowing the roots to spread easier, as well as allowing nutrients, water and air to move quicker.
Is my explanation correct?
