Top Gardening Jobs for January

A new month, a new year!

January in the garden is mostly about keeping things tidy and preparing for the year ahead.

Other top jobs for the month include;

🌿 Keep deadheading winter flowering Pansies to prevent them from going to seed.

🌿 Cut back ornamental grasses to within a few centimetres of the ground.

🌿 Prune rose bushes, cutting back to just above a bud and remove any dead stems.

🌿 Force rhubarb plants by placing a terracotta forcer pot or an upturned pot or bucket over the crown.

🌿 Prune gooseberries to encourage new growth.

🌿 Clean pots and greenhouses ready for Spring.

🌿 Trim back any ivy, Virginia creeper and other climbers that need tidying before birds start nesting.

🌿 Keep putting out food and water for the birds.
