Holiday Party at Dec. 13 Garden Meeting
With the holiday season in full swing, the Dec. 11 meeting of the Ramona Garden Club promises to bring fun and socialization to club members.
In lieu of a speaker, the time is spent enjoying a traditional potluck, with special faire provided by the club, and a holiday party. All members are encouraged to come out and enjoy the fun and antics of the holiday, and take a brief respite before diving into the New Year.
What to do in Your Garden this Time of Year
Although everyone is busy in December with the holidays, there are a few chores to remember. December is still a good time to plant cool-season annuals, although you won’t see flowering until spring.
Bare-root roses, trees, vines, berries, and vegetables can be planted.
Spring flowering bulbs can still be planted, except tulips, hyacinths, crocuses which should be planted between 12/25 and 1/1.
Stop deadheading and fertilizing roses and leave hips on the bushes until pruning in January. Prune fruit trees, wisteria, grapes, and native plants.
Keep watering if winter rains arrive late and watch for frost.
December is also a perfect time to leaf through seed catalogues and dream about next year’s garden.
Happy Holiday gardening!
