December is the time for rest and armchair gardening
It’s time to take a well-earned break and browse a few catalogues
Today is the start of meteorological winter. We are in the month of solstice, Hanukkah, Christmas, when the sun rises late yet sets early – and when average UK temperatures sulk around 5 or 6C.
It’s a time of quiet on the plot. Perhaps some digging in of organic matter if it is your style – we will, it is easier now than in January – and to top up leaf mould and compost.
