Garden jobs for December:

There is still time to plant out some annuals or potted colour to have the garden looking a picture for Christmas – try alyssum, lobelia, petunia, zinnia, salvia, verbena, marigolds.
Now is a good time to plant up pots and hanging baskets – there are so many choices available and your garden centre experts will help you to make the ideal selection
Shady spots are where much of summer days are enjoyed. Plant out now with shade-loving plants to have these areas full of colour and life for the months ahead.
Keep deadheading roses and water deeply to ensure a second flush of blooms.
Trim back any flowering shrubs that have now finished – this will encourage new growth over summer for next year’s flowers.
Give your garden a good fertilise with an organic fertiliser.
Top up your gardens with mulch to have these looking great and help with water retention.
Test and make any repairs to your garden irrigation.
Pull those weeds.
