The New Year, time for new starts

January Jobs

January is the beginning of the gardening year β€“ a time for fresh starts, renewed energy, and grand plans for the twelve months ahead.

Put your new-year enthusiasm to good use by cleaning pots, tools, water butts and greenhouses in preparation for spring. It’s not the most glamorous of tasks, but it will set you up for a great growing season.

Start planning what you want to do with your garden in the months to come. Now is the time to order seeds and plants from the comfort of your armchair (see below)

Check your winter protection is still working for you – survey any stakes, supports and ties that might have been damaged in bad weather.

Continue looking after wildlife – put out food for hungry birds and continue to leave some areas of your garden uncut for shelter until the spring.

More to come......

For some reason, I suddenly became interested in plants and gardening. I have grown a few plants in my backyard. I haven't started my plan to work on my front yard. This year, I just plan to do that. I am not a person with a green thumb, I don't think. So the first plants I bought from the local nursery are low maintenance plants. I know I'd get discouraged if I see the plants die or not thriving despite my efforts to make them grow. So I am starting with plants that will thrive even with minimal effort on my part.
