Learn how to look after your garden this New Year with Grow Garden's January garden to-do list.
Welcome the new year with a well-maintained garden. January is a crucial month for garden care, focusing on preparation and protection against the winter chill. Here’s your essential January garden to-do list, brought to you by Grow Gardens:
- Inspect and Maintain Winter Protection: Recheck the protections for your plants. Ensure that covers and fleeces are secure to safeguard your plants against frost.
- Plan Your Garden for the Year: Utilise this quieter period for planning your garden layout and selecting new plants to introduce in the upcoming seasons.
- Order Seeds and Summer Bulbs: Start ordering seeds and summer-flowering bulbs now. Early planning allows you to get the best selection for your garden.
- Prune Deciduous Trees and Shrubs: With the foliage gone, it’s easier to prune and shape these plants, setting them up for healthier growth.
- Organise and Maintain Garden Tools: Continue cleaning, sharpening, and organising your tools. Well-maintained tools make spring gardening more efficient.
- Repair Fences and Garden Structures: Check fences, trellises, and other structures for damage and make necessary repairs.
- Feed the Birds: Keep providing food for birds. They are vital for pest control and bring life to your winter garden.
- Start Indoor Sowing: Some plants require a longer growing season. Begin sowing these indoors to have them ready for planting after the frost.
- Turn the Compost: If accessible, turn your compost to aid decomposition, preparing it for spring use.
- Monitor Greenhouse Conditions: If you have a greenhouse, maintain optimal temperature and humidity to protect your plants.
