SUSSEX LOCAL Tasks for December


The time available for working in the garden is obviously limited by the shortage of day- light hours and further so by inclement weather but if and when conditions permit here are a few suggestions:


Lawns – start preparation work for any spring seeding.


Roses – it is unlikely that conditions will per- mit planting, so any new bushes should be heeled in until it is possible to plant. Collect fallen leaves and burn to destroy black spot spores.


Dahlias – continue with regular examination of stored tubers and treat as described in November issue.


Ponds and pools – keep a small area of sur- face free from ice in freezing weather to en- able any toxic gases to escape; this can be done by floating pieces of wood over a small area or covering it with some rush matting.


House plants – give plenty of light and keep slightly on the dry side.


And Finally... With the seasonal “muzaac” blasting out earlier every year I thought that Phocas would buck the trend and not mention the 'C' word at all. However when it arrives, wherever and with whom you celebrate, in these uncertain times, I hope that you can forget the outside world and enjoy it.
