Jobs to do in the garden in January

10 images

January is the time to tidy your garden shed and clean your garden tools, pots and trays. Have your mower serviced, too! After heavy snowfall, gently brush snow off conifers and hedges to stop the weight forcing them apart. Make sure all your plants are insulated and protected with garden fleece. If you’re ready to brave the fierce winter elements, then dig over beds and borders, incorporating as much organic matter as you can. So, what other gardening jobs should we be doing in January?
