December

 

 


These suggestions for your garden are intended for central Texas.  However, if you are not in central Texas these suggestions may still be helpful but may need to be done earlier or later in the season depending on your location.
 
A living Christmas Tree can be a fun way to celebrate and have a tree that can be planted in the yard. Trees that will do well in our soil and climate are Eldarica (Afghan) Pines, Leland Cypress, Arizona Cypress, Italian Cypress, and Blue Point Juniper.
 
December is a good time to mulch your flower beds.  Mulching will insulate the roots of your shrubs from the cold and help keep the roots moist through the winter.  Shredded mulches, like Cypress and Texas Native, tend to stray put and do not float off.
 
Bulbs that are fun to force indoors this time of year and give as gifts are paper white narcissus, amaryllis, hyacinths, and tulips. These bulbs can also be planted outdoors when the soil temperatures are consistently below 55 degrees.  This keeps them from sprouting prematurely. It is a good idea to put a pinch of bone meal in the hole when you plant bulbs.  This will grow stronger plants that bloom better.
 
Merry Christmas!
