Gardening Tips for December

  • Continue to rake up leaves for composting and to control pests and diseases.
  • Clean up garden beds.
  • Keep an eye on the weather report, protect frost-tender plants when the temperature falls below 32 degrees.
  • Prune non-flowering trees and shrubs while dormant.
  • Clean up debris around fruit trees to prevent disease.
  • Mulch, water, and cover tender plants to protect from frost.  Be sure to remove coverings during the day.
  • The birds stay in Northern California through the winter.  Since flowers are scarce in most gardens now, it’s important to keep your feeder filled; clean and refill it every few days.
  • Check dates of Master Gardener classes.
