December

It is not a good idea to work on frosted soil or frosty or wet lawns.

  • Dead head winter flowering Pansies.
  • Cut back Roses to prevent wind rock.
  • Protect Holly bushes that are carrying berries if you want to use the branches for Christmas decorations.
  • Put food out for the birds and make sure they have water.
  • Buy a real Christmas tree,
  • Some cheerful houseplants such as Cyclamen, Poinsettias and Azaleas brighten up the house at this dark time of year.
