It really feels like winter is upon us this week, with much of the country under a blanket of frost (or even snow) the last couple of days. But there is plenty to look forward to as the days get shorter, and all the festivities to anticipate as the month comes to a close.
Consider adding some December colour to your garden with my top ten plants to enjoy in your garden this month. Or consider some of these festive plants that not only you can enjoy, but you could also gift to your friends and family.
This time of the month is the most exciting time when you can look forward to decorating your home, including the main event: your Christmas tree. Before you head out to choose a tree for your home this month, watch this video to make sure you are picking the perfect one to suit your needs.
You can catch me on Love Your Weekend with Alan Titchmarsh on ITV on Sunday, December 17th. Make sure to tune in for some garden gadget gifts for your green-fingered friends.
This December, get yourself a hot drink and enjoy your garden indoors if the weather is on the colder side. For advice and my best gardening tips, visit my website and YouTube channel.
Merry Christmas, and a Happy New Year!
