Jobs Around The Garden In January

Shred your Christmas tree and add it to compost bins or use it for mulch in the garden.

Hang fat balls and keep bird feeders topped up to attract birds.

Get rid of slimy patches on the patio, and paving by scrubbing with a broom or blasting with a pressure washer.

Dig over any vacant plots that have not been dug already.

Wash empty pots by scrubbing them with hot water and a mild detergent. Rinse well afterwards.


Top Tips:

Avoid walking on your lawn if there is a heavy frost or snow, as this will damage the grass beneath.
