Salt in the Winter!

Gardening Tips — By on November 1, 2009 5:30 PM

Salt devastates plants! So don’t throw salt down to accelerate ice thaw on your driveway or steps, particularly if they are near by beds or borders.

Salt is most dangerous in late Fall and late Winter because feeder roots of your plants are not fully dormant and it can kill them.

Use an alternative such as kitty litter or sand. They both work just as well.

Do not use fertilizer to thaw ice. It’s salt content will thaw the ice but also damage the plants by over fertilizing.
