What to do now - January

  • Prune apple and pear trees.

  • Growing onions from seed, sow now for planting out when the risk of frost has passed. 

  • Sweeten Rhubarb - by covering with a large pot or bucket, by doing this you are forcing the sticks, they will be sweet and tasty.

  • Plan your crop rotations and which vegetables you will be growing this season 

  • Keep feeding the birds and put water out for them.

Tip of the month:-

For all year round colour buy one or two plants each month which are in flower and perennial. This way you will always have colour in your borders, no matter what time of year.
