This is a time to keep your dormant plants ‘ticking over’ until Spring approaches. This means remembering to provide enough water not to let pots or beds dry out completely but remain damp rather than wet or saturated.
Watch the weather forecast and turn on any heating which you have available or cover the plants with newspaper or fleece on frosty nights.
Enjoy your early flowering Acacias and keep them well watered when in flower.
Acacia verticillata and Acacia dealbata may even flower before January.
If they do a light pruning after flowering and a quick re-pot will ensure they produce copious new growth and, consequently, next year’s flowers.
