Do you have any winter greens in your veg patch? If you do, might be time to get some netting up. During the leaner months, pigeons especially like a bit of greenery and if they find unprotected cabbages, or brassicas, they may strip them bare before you even get a look in. However to protect all the birds, be sure the netting is pulled taut and tuck any lose ends securely away. Birds can get...

Now is a good time to prune certain trees and shrubs to prevent bleeding. Japanese acers, in particular, should be pruned before January. Bleeding is when sap oozes from a pruning cut and is normally not harmful, but pruning at the correct time means that if bleeding does occur, the plant will not suffer.

The winter flowering jasmine, Jasminum nudiflorum, is a delightful, deciduous shrub with yellow flowers born along arching stems followed by a burst of green oval leaves. This plant prefers full sun and, because it is a climber, it looks lovely trained against a wall. Plant one close to the house for a bright display of flowers during the chilly months.
As long as your ground is not frozen, it is still a good time for planting. For a splendid Spring display, nothing beats a magnolia tree so why not get one in the ground now? Trees planted at this time of year are easier to look after as they require less watering. Choose a sunny site and most any soil will do as long as it is not alkaline or very dry. It is a good idea to mulch around well...

A nice gardening project for the cold months is to make a terrarium. Small houseplants are best for this but an assortment of succulents is also very eye catching. However, do not mix and match; choose a selection of plants with the same watering and lighting requirements.

To make one, follow these steps:

1. Source a container and clean well
2. Add a drainage layer of small gravel
3. Add a...

Now the days are getting shorter, it is nice to find ways to cheer up the indoors. For a pretty flower and heady scent it is hard to beat a hyacinth; just one can be enough to perfume a room. They are very easy to grow in either soil or glass hyacinth vases; be sure not to let the bulb touch the water if you use a vase.
Houseplants are a terrific way to brighten the indoors during winter months and the Peace Lily has got to be one of the best. It can tolerate most any light conditions, including dark hallways or fluorescent lighting but do keep it out of direct sunlight.

When your Peace Lily needs a drink, it lets you know so keep an eye on sagging leaves and add just enough water to maintain a sprightly...

Most gardens have a hydrangea. Does yours? They are a fairly easy-going plant but here are some tips for caring for them over the winter months. Remove dead blooms on mophead hydrangeas just after flowering but, if you do not mind the appearance, it is best to leave them over winter to protect the tender buds below from frost. Ideally wait until early spring and cut back dead flowerheads to...

Orchids are a popular flowering houseplant, loved for their long arching stems of flowers which last for weeks. They are easy to look after if you follow a few guidelines.

They should be planted in open, free draining specialist orchid compost. Start them in a container one or two sizes larger and only repot when the roots fill the pot. You may see roots outside of the container; but do not...

Can you keep herbs going all winter? Surprisingly, yes! Some of them are cold-hardy. Here’s a short list:

Rosemary will keep going, either out of doors or in a cold frame. You can even dare to snip a few sprigs for your roast potatoes during winter, just not too much!

Parsley & Mint can both weather a storm and you might even get a bit of growth from the parsley even if it snows. But avoid...

Next, fill a container with dry sand; one or two depending on how many tools you have. Mix the sand with just enough vegetable oil to moisten all the way...

So many garden jobs in Autumn and here's another: tidy up your climbing roses. Any long shoots can be shortened or tied in during autumn, which will minimize damage from strong winds.

And while you're at it, now is also a good time to remove dead, diseased or dying branches but save the main pruning work until after the flowers have completely faded, usually from December to February.
One of the delights of the winter garden is the sight of a pretty hellebore flower, sometimes known as 'Christmas Rose', nodding its head from between the evergreen leaves. They are extremely easy to grow and thrive in dappled shade which is not a situation many other plants enjoy. Hellebores come in a range of colours, from white, to lime green to pinks and a deep purple-mauve. Try planting a...
