December Tips

garden tools
  • Plant any bulbs you’ve pre-chilled as soon as you’ve removed them from the refrigerator.
  • Cover open compost bins with a tarp when the rains begin.
  • If frost is predicted, cover sensitive garden plants such as citrus, fuchsia and succulents or move them under a sheltering overhang. Use stakes around the plants to suspend the covering material so it doesn’t touch the foliage.
  • Clean your tools—remove all soil and wash them with a 10 percent bleach solution to avoid spreading diseases. After drying them completely, apply a light layer of vegetable oil to prevent rusting.
