The Fruit Garden in December


Normally there is very little to do in the fruit garden this month apart from perhaps removing fallen leaves that may have collected in and around the fruit trees / shrubs.

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
