Now’s the time to plan for the year ahead and think about what seeds and plants you’ll need. Get out into the garden on dry days and check your winter protection such as stakes, ties and supports are still doing their job. Make sure you put out food for birds and leave some garden areas uncut, a little longer, to provide shelter for wildlife in your garden. Here’s our top January gardening tips.
Gardening really is good for you! By choosing the right plants we can design gardens that encourage wildlife to drop in for food, water and shelter, or even take up residence. Developing an all-year-round wildlife-friendly garden satisfies our own creativity and feeling of achievement, bringing us outside and closer to nature to reduce stress and improve our wellbeing. Contact with plants and the soil also enhances our health and boosts the immune system, too.
