Recommended tasks and hints for December

  • Feed the birds in cold weather and don’t allow ponds and bird baths to freeze over.

  • Continue winter digging incorporating organic matter.

  • Clean paths, repair sheds and fences.

  • Prune woody ornamental plants, fruit trees and bushes.

  • Prune tall bush roses to guard against wind rock.

  • Cut autumn raspberries back to ground level.

  • Plant out bare-root shrubs, roses and trees and keep them well watered so the roots can spread and establish.

  • If you’ve been forcing bulbs for an indoor display then now is the time to bring them inside to a well-lit, cool spot.

  • Stake or earth up your sprout plants to prevent damage caused by wind rock.

  • Keep off the grass in frosty weather. Black footprints do not look good!

  • Insulate garden taps and any exposed pipes.
