Hello, a NEW MONTH and a step closer to the end of winter, and the beginning of spring. By the end of this month, we will have gained nearly an extra hour of daylight, compared to the beginning of the year.
The plants are slowly beginning to stir – buds are starting to swell, the bulbs are really pushing through now, and before we know it, a new gardening season will be upon us.
The Victorians were always banging on about getting ahead with work – and they were so right. If you do not make progress this month, come March and higher temperatures the garden will run away with you.
Many of us have not felt much like gardening in January – and in some cases it was not physically possible due to the weather – but decent weather is forecast for this weekend , so now is the ideal opportunity to get ahead with planting those trees,shrubs and hedge plants before they start to come into leaf.
GRAB EVERY OPPORTUNITY AND GET AHEAD!!
UNTIL NEXT TIME,
