December guide to gardening focus on the Christmas season, and there will not be many opportunities to garden before the Christmas season is over. We can at least not let the gardening totally neglected, although it reached a stage where care and support is the most important – the watering of the garden, removing dead flowers, combating pests and clearing weeds. Now is the appropriate time to give the garden a little shake before the Christmas Holiday.
If you have a little time, think about the year gone by, you will realize that all your little mistakes in it are revealed. So, I would suggest that, during the Christmas and New Year Holidays quietly sit in your favorite spot in your garden and the work you put in over the last year in your garden done in memory calls. Do not be discouraged, because failures are a challenge for the future.
It might also be good if you check the supply of land for seed production purposes, compost and pots. It is not every gardener who likes to have a winter garden, but it is something really worthwhile.
Next year’s harvest begins today. Make sure your vegetable garden is well kept wet and nourished. Spray your garden regularly to prevent insect pests. The summer days indicate where shade trees in a garden are most needed. Decide now where you will be planting trees in the fall and winter.
Leverage cool, rainy weather to sow vegetable seedlings and other perennials for planting. You may need to hold them for a short while in the shade.
