#1- January is a great time to prune deciduous trees and shrubs. One exception is…spring flowering shrubs. Don’t nip them in the bud! 😉
#2- Repair and prep your garden tools for the new year. Need to get your pruners in shape? Sign up for our class on Sat. the 10th at 2 pm. Read more here.
#3- In late January you can start planting bare root fruit trees, strawberries, raspberries and other cane fruits. Not to mention rhubarb crowns. Grow a pie garden!
#4 – If any of your plants are shivering, make sure to give them protection with some harvest protection cloth or burlap or whatever you have at hand.
#5 – Plan! Get inspired! Look through magazines, drop by the Garden Spot and visit the NWFGS on Feb. 12th with us. Winter is the perfect time to re-design your garden.
