Propagating Tasks in December


As mentioned last month, ensure that any seedlings and cuttings you have propagated to date, are not subjected to sub zero temperatures, drying out completely or becoming water-logged.

Note: As with most advice on gardening the advisors location will often influence the content of the advice.

To alleviate this problem I have produced this chart indicating how you can make adjustments to the timing of events as seen in this website.

I hope you find this useful! .......Tg

Week 49 - 1st Dec. to 7th Dec.

Keep an eye on any plants/stock that you are over-wintering. Ensure that they are not drying out or being attacked by pests or disease!

In the event of the latter remove and destroy affected stock to ensure that the remainder of your stock is not contaminated!

Week 50 - 8th Dec. to 14th Dec.


Week 51 - 15th Dec. to 21st Dec.


Week 52 - 22nd Dec. to 31st Dec.


Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year
