HOME + LIFESTYLE General Maintenance n Prune acers, birches and vines before January to avoid bleeding. n Reduce watering of houseplants. n Lawns will continue to grow if we have a mild December above 6c and may still need a final trim this month. Look at for standing leaves on your lawn as they will kill the grass if left all winter. n Remember to feed the birds. You might want to invest in some new bird feeders. Remember unless you clean old bird feeders they harbour disease n Don’t forget to tidy your tubs and containers by removing weeds, debris and add a layer of decorative gravel/grit mulch; this will stop mud splashing up in wet weather. n Continue to tidy-up fallen leaves from borders if you have not already done so and add them to the compost heap.

n Christmas cactus can fail to give flower buds if the temperature is too high . Try moving the cactus into a cooler environment n Hyacinths like a cool, bright space - if it’s too warm you will have more leaves than flowers. n In mild areas you can still lift and divide herbaceous perennials such as hostas when the weather is dry. This will increase your stocks and revive any poorly flowering clumps. n Prune climbing roses now; cutting away diseased or damaged growth and tying in any new shoots to their support. Prune older flowered side shoots back by two thirds of their length.

Flower Garden n If you have an indoor Cyclamen plant, keep it in a cool, light room. Water into the saucer not the pot to avoid wetting the leaves which can easily result in fungal infections. n Clear weeds from your flower beds.

Vegetable & Fruit Garden n Now’s the time to prune fruit trees. Always use a sharp pair of secateurs, loppers and a pruning saw Start by removing crossing, rubbing, weak, dead, diseased, damaged and dying branches. Keep the centre of the tree open by removing larger branches with a sharp pruning saw. n Dig over empty borders and pile manure on top - let the worms and frosts break up the clods of soil. n Soft fruit such as currants, gooseberries, raspberries, blackberries and tayberries can be planted at this time as they are dormant.

This months poem... “While snow the window-panes bedim, The fire curls up a sunny charm, Where, creaming o’er the pitcher’s rim, The flowering ale is set to warm; Mirth, full of joy as summer bees, Sits there, its pleasures to impart, And children, ‘tween their parent’s knees, Sing scraps of carols o’er by heart.” - John Clare, December
