Seedlings in December

In December, owners can plant frost-resistant crops that take a long time to grow and develop. These are mostly ornamental flowers, which take 5-7 months from sowing to flowering.

OBOZ.UA has compiled a list of such plants. If you plant the seedlings now, you will be able to admire the beautiful flowers in late spring or early summer.

Ornamental crops

In December, owners sow frost-resistant flowers with a long growing season. These include eustoma, snapdragon, petunias, clematis, and lavender.

After sowing, be sure to cover the flowers with a transparent film to protect them from adverse weather conditions. Then, when the first sprouts appear, remove the cover to allow the plants to adapt to the fresh air.

Conifers, oak, maple and robinia should also be planted in early December. Fruit trees such as pear, apple, apricot, plum, and others are best planted in spring or fall when there are no severe frosts.

Herbs and vegetables

If you want to have fresh herbs and vegetables in the winter, then it's time to sow these crops. Prepare a suitable place on the windowsill or in the greenhouse. You will need a container or a pot, fertile soil, and seeds. You can plant cucumbers, tomatoes, greens, cabbage, celery, and sweet potatoes.
