Seasonal Ideas & Information for December

Vegetables and Herbs – Gardeners are continuing to plant arugula, bok choy, broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, chard, collards, lettuce, mustard greens, kale and more!  

Plant Bulbs Now – Paperwhites, Tulips, and Amaryllis     

Perennials and Annuals –  It’s time to plant alyssum, cyclamen, pansies, snapdragons, violas and ornamental cabbages.  If you haven’t done so already, work some compost into the soil before planting. 

Cyclamen are perfect for before, during, and after the holidays!  Cyclamen are one of the few options for flowers in shadier areas of your garden at this time of year and they keep right on blooming until the warm weather returns in spring.  Planted in your garden or entryway pots, they are a special way to greet visitors to your home.   They’re excellent for gift giving too!
