January Tasks

A new year brings a new plan and the beginning of the year is as good a time as any to review the year gone and plan for the year ahead.

This month is also one where the work done now will reap rewards later in the year.  January is still bare root planting time, weather permitting.  It is also a time to begin soil preparation, a task that will continue into Spring.  Pruning is on the agenda also.  Consider reviewing your roses and fruit trees to see what needs pruning.

January is a good month for general cleaning and tidying – getting the garden (and ourselves!)  in shape for the year ahead.  Think of clearing remaining leaves, freshening up lawn edges and top dressing flowerbeds and borders.

For more immediate reward why not create a winter display by filling some large pots with cyclamen, primroses or pansies.
