December To-Do List: Zone 6
  • As weather permits, continue to harvest leeks and kale.
  • Keep straw snuggled around any crops still in the garden.
  • If using a coldframe to grow greens through winter, rig a plastic tunnel over the frame for extra warmth.
  • After the holidays, remove the branches from your cut Christmas tree and lay them over perennials and fall-planted pansies.
  • Divide overgrown Boston ferns: Cut the rootball in half with a sharp knife, then repot.
  • Cut back asparagus fronds.
  • Refill bird feeders as needed.
