December 24 – December 30

Bare-root, rootballed or container-grown deciduous trees, hedging and shrubs can be planted, but do not plant in wet conditions. Roses can be pruned late in the year, including bedding roses and climbers, especially in mild areas where this is a very short rest period for roses. Check that young trees are securely staked. Young trees can be pruned to remove badly placed branches. The lower branches of garden trees can be pruned up to allow light to plants underneath.
