Time to grow

Now’s the time to start thinking of spring and summer bulbs. Whilst it’s still cold, invest in a greenhouse to get your seedlings started.

 Garden planter

Plant up some pots

We love the idea of creating winter planters – they add a pop of colour to cold, grey days. Try winter pansies, snowdrops or winter heather.

Tidy, trim and prune

On a dry day, use a pole saw, hedge trimmer or loppers to neaten up overgrown hedges or clear away any broken branches.

Stock up your shed...

Here's our essential garden equipment for the month:

Hedge trimmers – a quick way to neaten up overgrown trees and hedges.

Chainsaws – break up larger pieces of wood (could you reuse it in your chiminea?)

Secateurs – easily prune and deadhead winter flowers.

Loopers and pole saws – a safe way to reach and cut taller hedges or branches.

Trowel – a must-have to start planting and potting seedlings.

Spade – use to clear away any snow or to move larger plants and bushes.

Garden tidy

Step 1 - clear up fallen debris

Don’t leave rotten leaves, twigs or branches – they can damage your lawn and stop sunlight from coming through. Use a rake or leaf blower to gently remove them.

Step 2 - create some compost

Put your garden debris to good use with a composter. Once it’s broken down into mulch, you can reuse it on your flowerbeds to protect the soil.

Step 3 - check your fences

After bad weather, fences can weaken. Now is a good time to check they’re still secure or replace any damaged panels on a dry day.

Step 4 - sort your storage

A quick way to keep your garden tidy is by tucking things away. Think sheds, storage boxes, mower stores, or put up shelves in your garage.

Bring the outdoors in

Extend your garden to a warmer spot. No matter the size of your conservatory, pick versatile garden furniture, which you can use both inside and out. Fill your space with potted plants or faux foliage, and create a homely spot with scattered cushions, rugs and side tables.
