What to do in the Garden the frist week of January:
You might look out of your window and think that there is not a lot you can do this time of the year in the garden,however now is the time to:
1.Make new flower beds. If you want to reorder your garden it is a good idea to select and prepar now . No matter wether annuals, bieunials, or perennials are to be planted, it is important to dig the land deeply and to add organic manure.
2.If you have light and well drained soil, now is the time to arrange the planting of any new fruit trees. If,however your land is wet and heavy you may wish to defer until February or march.
3.Most of the UK at the moment is waterlogged. My own plot is under 10 inches of water. So not a lot can be done. However it is a good time to make a cropping plan and look to your stock of seeds to see what you would need to buy.
