Pike Nurseries tips on December gardening

Pike Nurseries' Melodie McDanal visited Good Day Atlanta Friday to talk about December Gardening.

In the Garden
- Decorate for Christmas - Put up fresh, fragrant wreaths and garland, and wrap your house in Christmas lights
- Add Color - There's still time to add flower color to your garden and containers. Plant pansies, hardy cyclamen, Helleborus Gold Collection and more
- Bulbs - This is your last chance to plant spring blooming bulbs like hyacinths, crocus and tulips. Plant bulbs pointy side up
- Prune for Décor - Prune evergreen plants like holly, magnolia, dogwood and more. Use the cuttings in your table arrangement or mantel décor

In the House
- Christmas Tree - Get your Christmas tree now.
- Poinsettias & Christmas Cactus - Decorate with poinsettias and Christmas cactus throughout your home. Avoid putting plants near drafty areas or near a heat source

For the Birds
- Food sources for birds are more limited this time of year
- Place bird feeders throughout your yard
- Bird suet is especially good this time of year since it packs lots of nutrients – it's like a powerbar for the birds
