Happy New Year
New year, new garden.
It looks like being a cold start to 2020 with plenty more cold weather still to come. Our gardens are looking after themselves this month as they reach dormancy. Nothing quite beats the sight of frost on bare branches first thing in a morning! Even so, for us gardeners there is always something to keep us busy, even on wild winter days. Let’s take a look at what you can be doing in your garden this month;
- Ensure frost protection is secure
- Continue to feed the birds and other wildlife
- Clean garden tools and greenhouses
- Sow early peas
- Prune Wisteria
- Cut back ornamental grasses
- Prune apple and pear trees
- Plan your 2020 garden
All the Christmas decorations have now been packed away for another year (or will be soon), and often the house can be left feeling rather empty. Bring rooms back to life with houseplants and floral arrangements. If you struggle to keep certain houseplants, why not try something really easy like Kalanchoe. Also known as ‘Flaming Katie’ these stupendous houseplants require very little care and will reward you with endless flowers for months! Purify the air with Spathiphyllum (Peace Lily). Again, this architectural houseplant not only looks great, but is beneficial too! Given a bright position, with a plenty of water (not too much though) this wonderful plant will add colour and life to any room and will happily continue to grow and flower for years. Look out for Tillandsia too. Better known as ‘Air’ plants, these plants are a perfect option for even the worst of houseplant keepers. They naturally grow without being potted and require very little care. They often come attached to pieces of wood or decorative terarriums. Spray with a combined feed and water spray once a week and soak once a month. It couldn’t be any easier!
Bring gardening indoors this month with houseplants, and look forward to the wonderful gardening year ahead!
