January Garden Advice and Maintenance
Whitehaven Garden Centre - January Advice

General Gardening

  • Repair or replace patchy lawn and re-shape edges
  • Check any stored tubers of Dahlia, Begonia and Canna for rot or drying out
  • Currants and gooseberries can be pruned now
  • Start forcing rhubarb
  • Plan vegetable crop rotations for the coming season. Select the varieties you intend to grow during the year and buy the seeds
  • Tidy beds and borders, mulch with well rotted manure, compost or bark and apply a slow release fertiliser e.g. bone meal
  • To prevent branches snapping remove snow from evergreen trees and shrubs
  • Avoid walking on your lawn when it is frosty, as this will cause damage

In the Greenhouse

  • Ventilate the greenhouse on warm days
  • Do not over water your plants, water only when the compost is dry
