• Set pots of humidity-loving houseplants on trays filled with pebbles and a shallow layer of water. Pots should sit on the pebbles, not in the water.

• Wash dust from houseplant leaves on a regular basis. This reduces pest problems and allows plants to gather light more efficiently.

• Hang suet cake feeders in trees to attract insect-feeding birds to your garden.

• Review seed and nursery catalogs for plants with improved insect, disease and drought resistance.

• Sow pansy and geranium seeds indoors now to provide plants for the spring garden. Both species are slow growers and require many weeks to attain transplant size.
