Garden Jobs in December
Christmas is nearly upon us, and although the light is at it's lowest and the weather is often grey, there is nothing nicer than sitting inside cosy and warm, admiring all the plants that take centre stage this season. The flower heads that shimmer in the frost, the vibrant colours from stems and winter flowers glowing in the morning sunshine and the magnificent evergreen structures that have blended in so well all year, suddenly come into focus.
1. Plant up some Christmas and Lenton roses (Hellebores) to place by your front door or on the terrace where you can enjoy them from inside. Try mixing them with evergreen grasses, such as Uncinia everflame or Ophiopogon for great contrasting effects.
