Gardening at Home
Plan which vegetables you would like to plant this year and when to plant them using this seed sowing calendar.
January might be the middle of winter but, as the days lengthen, the garden starts to grow. Now is a great time to plan for the coming gardening year.
Check your winter protection, stakes, ties and supports are still working after any severe weather.
Count your seeds from last year and order more seeds for the upcoming growing season.
Plant begonia and pelargonium seeds in a heated, indoor space. This could be a window seal.
- Also put out food for birds and leave some garden areas uncut, a little longer, to provide shelter for wildlife in your garden.
Watch our Gardener in Residence, Jennie, demonstrate how to make a bird feeder out of recycled materials.
Don’t forget to enjoy the winter sun on dry days!
