January jobs

As I write this it is currently snowing heavily and the garden is white over.


I've done a checklist of some of the things you can do to prepare for the oncoming year.


  • Check tools and kit required for the year ahead, including stakes, netting, compost, seeds, labels etc

  • Make repairs to irrigation, fencing, netting, cold frames etc

  • Clean and sharpen tools

  • Clear and tidy glasshouses, shed, cold frames

  • Project work requiring big changes, such as installing fencing / changing the garden layout etc

  • Order dahlias and chrysanthemums

  • Continue cutting down any perennials

  • Weeding

  • Mulching

  • Straw path laying

  • Plant bare-root plants

  • Service of mower change oil/filter/spark plug
