Things to do in December

Tidy up berry canes

Cane fruits need to be well managed. If not, they will make an unruly mess in the garden and the fruit will be harder to pick. They will be growing rapidly now, so weave or tie wayward canes back into their trellis system

Protect young fruit

Fruits like nectarines, almonds, peaches and cherries will be forming now. Netting trees now will save fruits from birds, who have a knack of feeding on fruit crops before we do!

Look after your pot plants

The sun is beginning to have more of a kick to it now and plants growing in containers can be more susceptible to heat damage than those in the ground. Move any plants that dislike full sun into a semi shaded position to keep them going over summer.
