GAR­DEN TASKS

Hamilton Metro News - - Gardening -

Deep wa­ter­ing

Time to take wa­ter­ing se­ri­ously. Deep hand wa­ter­ing is time con­sum­ing but it’s more ef­fec­tive and eco­nom­i­cal than us­ing a spray noz­zle or sprin­kler. Do it early morn­ing or evening.

Get mulching

Mulch wher­ever pos­si­ble. It’ll help to keep the gar­den moist when you’re busy over Christ­mas.

Add gera­ni­ums

Plant gera­ni­ums in a sunny, dry spot, and fuch­sias in sem­ishaded ar­eas in the gar­den.

Plant­ing time

Also plant out cap­sicums and cel­ery, and get into a plant­ing rou­tine with salad greens and let­tuce.
