January in the garden - what are we doing this month in Somerset?
Meanwhile there are plenty of jobs out there to do.
First I need to prune the roses, and weed and mulch them – we use lovely Lakeland Gold from Dalefoot Compost which really helps break up our clay and gives the plants enough of a feed that we don’t need to feed in the summer.
Then I need to just work my way round all the beds here, making sure that each section has had the gutters dug out to help with drainage, and a quick weed, and a mulch to get the empty spaces in good heart for planting in the spring, and to feed the perennials and shrubs.
And I may have ordered a few new bare root roses… for which a bed needs to be prepared.
Always much to do, and with two kids at home ‘loving’ being home schooled I really need to focus and not waste time.
