Maintain planters and improving soil

December is a great time for weeding and improving soil.

Weeding done now will save time in the spring as perennial weed roots thicken and can spread over the winter months, making them more of a problem if left until next spring.

Digging over soil will help to allow worms and frosts to break up any clumps of heavy soil. Winter rain can also wash many nutrients. To help reduce this you can keep unused soil covered with leaf mould or fresh autumn leaves.
