Pre­pare your gar­den for the fes­tive sea­son

by plant­ing pot­ted colour and trim­ming the edges of your lawn. Then lay mulch to con­serve soil mois­ture; in­stall an ir­ri­ga­tion timer; move pot­ted plants into the shade; trim hedges and dead­head roses; and pick any crops near­ing ma­tu­rity be­fore you head off for the hol­i­days.
