November – The evenings are long and dark now – and perfect for fireworks! Throw a bonfire party (a good excuse to burn all of your rubbish ready for Christmas!), make a Guy to put on the bonfire and get a few friends around to enjoy hot chocolate and burgers. Get some fireworks and make a night of it – make sure that you check your bonfire for any hedgehogs nesting in it before you set light to it.

December – A winter wonderland! If we are lucky, we will get some snow to coat the landscape in its festive beauty, but if we don’t spread a little Christmas cheer by decking hedges, tress, anywhere really with strings of pretty outdoor lights and make a real festive scene in your own back garden. There is a lot of inspiration in shops and garden centres for whatever budget and taste you have.
