What to do NOW: December 5 – December 11

Trees, Shrubs and Roses

  • Plant shelter belts, hedges, and woodland areas, ideally planting small bare-root whips or transplants, which are relatively cheap to buy, establish well and are easily planted.
  • Move deciduous trees or shrubs that need more room or are simply in the wrong place. Most deciduous shrubs move successfully.
  • In exposed districts, stop planting garden evergreens.
  • Plant roses of all kinds now to ensure that root growth will be well underway before spring.
