Beneficial Bugs & Winter Cover: Hello Marianne. I have been working towards a more organic approach in my garden since last spring. I no longer use pesticides and have released several lacewing eggs to try to re-establish a balance. I am confused though as to how I should proceed now that the garden is entering dormancy -> Some sources say to remove the perennial foliage, etc. to avoid harboring the eggs & larvae of insect pest species, while other sources say to leave the dead stems, leaves & seed-heads in place to provide habitat for overwintering the "good guys" and feeding the birds who are also characterized as "good guys". I know there are no simple answers, but might I have your take based on personal experience? I have evergreen perennial grasses, deciduous berried shrubs and evergreen trees for cover and a food source which remain in place year round. Thank you.
