December in the garden
DECEMBER is always a busy month for
us all, but it is important not to forget the
garden amongst all of the Christmas cheer.
If you have been intending to plant some
herbs in the garden, but haven’t got there
yet, do not fret. There is still time to plant
herbs such as basil, chives, parsley,
rosemary, dill, sage and thyme. Mint can
still be planted, but perhaps stick to a pot to
prevent it from taking over the entire garden.
Vegetables such as carrots, cucumbers,
zucchini and silverbeet will also still grow
well if planted now.
It is important to top up gardens and
vegetable patches with mulch after giving
them a good water. This is particularly vital
if a hot summer is forecast, or if you will be
holidaying throughout summer.
December is a good time to give plants a
feed, particularly young seedling planted in
November. Try a liquid fertiliser or seaweed
Lawn care is also important in the month
of December. Try to let your lawns grow
a little longer than usual to help form a
protective layer for summer, slowing down
the evaporation from the soil.
Make sure to feed and continue to
deadhead your roses regularly throughout
December is hectic enough without having
to worry about the garden, but a little care
now will ensure a great display throughout
