December gardening jobs. The garden has not been very inviting over the last few weeks. It just seems to be tidying up jobs that need to be done and as there is no rush for this, they tend to get put off. Things that really do need your attention are the hoses that need to be put away. Cover any pots that you have which are not frost proof with jute material, or fleece. This will stop them from cracking when the frost hits. Lifting them off the ground with blocks of wood or special ceramic feet will both help too. A lot of these pots are made for the sunny Mediterranean not chilly England! Also cover any plants such as palms/fragile lavenders with Easy Fleece Jackets that are made for this job.

Choosing your Christmas Present

Now very importantly, decide what you want for Christmas and let a few hints get dropped. A new pair of gloves – some cloches – a pair of secateurs. Look at the seed catalogues and decide what you want to grow next year. This is indoor one of those indoor gardening jobs that is actually a pleasure to do! So why not, curl up with a cuppa and a few catalogues when it is cold and wet outside? You really need to be prepared. Some seeds such as tomatoes and peppers need to be sown as soon as January so watch out.
