Keep your garden in mind as you celebrate the holidays with these four fun tips.
- Reuse a tomato cage to make a Christmas decoration. They’re simple to make. You can unwind the decorations and use them again as tomato cages next summer.
- When wrapping presents, choose materials that can be composted. You’ll be keeping items out of landfills, plus you’ll be creating wonderful compost for your gardens!
- Use this tip to water your Christmas tree without bending over.
- Keep some of the branches from your real Christmas tree (or from the tree a neighbor puts out to the curb) and set the branches around your perennials. The branches will protect the plant’s roots if we have wild swings in temperature.
