Things to do in the garden- December

Southern Hemisphere

– During summer, black beetles emerge from holes in the lawn. Treat with Baythroid Lawn Grub & Garden Insecticide.

– Prune Bottlebrush once it has finished flowering.

– Pick agapanthus for nice Christmas flower displays.

– Sow Aster, Rudbeckia, Salvia, Squash, Beans, Cauliflower and Beetroots.

– December can be very warm. So its not an ideal time to be doing any planting at all. Its a time to enjoy the garden after (hopefully) a hard working Spring.


Northern Hemsiphere

– Protect your sensitive plants from frost, if you havent already done so.

– Prune fruit trees. Now all the fruit will have been harvested, take the time to tidy them up with any required pruning.

– Prune roses.
