It is still a good time to plant roses, trees, shrubs, provided the ground is not frozen or waterlogged. Don’t forget bonemeal – ideal food for most new plantings.
Protect tender plants with horticultural fleece, and prevent planted pots from freezing solid by wrapping them in bubble wrap.
Clean pots, cold frames & cloches with jeyes fluid to reduce disease next year.
Plant fruit trees & bushes, any time the ground is not water-logged or frozen, to give you a delicious harvest for years to come
Continue to remove fallen leaves with a rake or besom, collecting them into a sack to rot into leaf mould.
Still time to spike your lawn if you have problems with moss or bad drainage, use an aerator or garden fork.
In cold weather keep a well-stocked bird table or feeder. Keep feeding areas clean with bird-safe disinfectant
Buy ready-planted bulb bowls for colour and scented at Christmas and beyond.
Why not liven up a bed near the house with plants for Winter interest? Viburnum, honeysuckle, Jasmine are just a few!
Treat yourself or friends to planted arrangements, azaleas, cyclamen or other houseplants – the perfect gift.
