January Gardening Tips

We have a few top tips from our Landscapers to help you take care of your Garden this January.. 

  • Repair lawn edges around flower & shrub borders using an edging iron (half moon), slicing down the edge of the grass will slow down the encroachment of grass roots from spreading into the border
  • Dig over your vegetable plot, the coming frosts will help break down any large lumps of soil & help aerate it
  • Mulching borders will help suppress spring weeds & also protect any new growth from the frosts
  • Clear away those last few leaves
  • Bare rooted roses & shrubs can still be planted
  • Keep bird feeders topped up, the winter berries will soon come to an end
  • Clean out & sterilise greenhouses including shelves & tools
  • if you have a pond- an old ball placed in the water will stop the pond from freezing over completely 
  • Have mowers serviced ready for the first cut
