December Garden Maintenance Tips

  • Apply a good mulch over herbaceous beds to provide protection over the winter period
  • Move any tender plants into a greenhouse for overwintering
  • Gather and dispose of leaves within the garden. Any healthy leaves can be composted
  • Try to keep an area of a pond or pool unfrozen in order to allow noxious gases to escape.
    Floating rubber balls in the pool can help.
  • Net and remove any plant debris and leaves from ponds/ pools
  • Decemberis a good time to plant any bare root heding
  • Lift and divide autumn flowering snowdrops
  • Winter prune fruit trees and bushes
