Wildlife Gardening for December

Here in Central Virginia (zone 7) we can enjoy these wildlife gardening activities:

• Great Horned Owls are pairing up this month to breed. Listen for their calls to each other.
• Prepare planting beds now with compost and manure to be ready for spring planting. Get compost how-to here.
• Breeding begins for Fox and Gray Squirrels, while Chipmunks hole up for the winter.
• Start pruning wisteria by removing longer canes
• Prune evergreen trees and use the trimmings for a cozy brush pile for the birds and other wildlife
• Keep the feeders full and add a warmer to your birdbath. Water is critical for birds in winter too.
