The first frost is on its way, but your plants still need the proper care to stay strong and healthy throughout the winter. December is a time for tender plant care and preparation for the coming spring.

Buy your seeds for the spring. Getting your seeds early lets you be prepared for the planting season and makes it easier to start growing them indoors if you wish.

Sow the seeds for your frost-tolerant perennials, such as Siberian Iris. These beautiful flowers are colorful and bloom in beautiful hues of purple and violet.

Plant Tulip bulbs after chilling them in your refrigerator.

Prune hardy trees. Apply dormant spray to your deciduous trees to prevent diseases or over-wintering insect infection. Keep your living Christmas tree strong and hearty by giving it warm water as needed. The warm water is easier for the tree to absorb, and keeps the limbs strong for holding ornaments. Spray wreaths with a bit of water as needed if they start to dry. This keeps them fresh and green
