Treat to a preChristmas pick-me-up of pelletised fertiliser and a light g cut back. Brighten up decks, patios and courtyards with a few pots or hanging baskets. Apart from looking good, they are also believed to repel aphids, beetles and a range of other b bugs.
Plant warmth-loving ones such as eggplant and corn, along with beans, beetroot, capsicum, carrot, zucchini and a few late tomatoes.
Buy a pot or two of already-flowering white Christmas lilies for veranda display, lay, then plant them out after the big g day. a pair of garden hammocks for apres-Christmas garden slumbering.
