What is there to do In the Garden in December? There is still time to plant those California natives.
If you do it now, they will be well established by the time the hot weather comes around. Check your irrigation system for leaks and possible upgrade. Plant bareroot trees, shrubs, vines, etc.
Prune deciduous trees and shrubs BUT if you find pest-infested wood, find out the pest is and be prepared to wait until Summer to cut out and dispose. This week is “This Month In the Garden” with UC Master Gardeners. MGs Katrina and Teena will update you with their delightful banter and give you tips and tricks and inspiration on what to do garden-wise this month.
