Gardening Month By Month: December Projects

Some garden activities for the last month of the year

The last month of the year is oftern a quiet one in the garden, although if the weather is fairly mild, there are still things to be done. You can tidy up paths, the flower beds and the rockery. If you have been too busy before to build a rockery, one can be made during this month.

If you can obtain any small-growing trees or shrubs, they can be planted in December.
Some people think Rhododendrons are difficult to cultivate, but this most beautiful outdoor flowering shrub is easily grown, and can be planted this month. Privet can also be planted now, and hardy ferns.

The home-made implement that you can make this month is a drill-maker for use next year. Just get a board twelve inches wide, and, say, two-and-a-half feet long, and cut it as shown in the sketch. The block is six inches square, and a broom-handle is fastened into a hole in the centre.
