Jordan’s Top Tips for your January Garden

Inspiration for your January Garden

Believe it or not, there is plenty to do in your garden this January!

Now is the perfect time to prune your roses. Roses can be pruned back fairly harsh to keep a nice dense shape, cutting out all of the dead wood and weak shoots which in time will encourage stronger, healthier growth and more, larger flowers.

I love ornamental grasses, especially this time of year. Yes, their foliage is dead but they keep their structure which looks stunning blowing in the wind in winter or covered in snow/ frost. However, January is the time to cut them back to a couple of centimeters from ground level.

Cut down any other perennials you have that have died back to ground level now. They are still alive and well underground making all the beautiful growth and flowers for next year’s show.

Remove old hellebore leaves to make room for new growth and flowers which will begin to bloom any time now – how exciting!

Deadhead winter bedding (Pansies, Violas and Polyanthus) to stop them going from seed and encourage them to put their energy into making new flowers. Continue doing this until April/ May time. If your Pansies look particularly tired, remove all of the old/ dead growth, all of the spend flower buds and give them a right trim back. Yes, they will look sad for a couple of weeks but they will put on a great show for you.

Keep feeding the birds. They’re cold and need feeding up this time of year too 😊 plus the more birds, the less garden pests you will have in your garden!

More quick tips:

  • Remove yellowing leaves from your winter Brassicas.
  • Now is a good time to prepare the ground for your early peas.
  • Avoid walking on your lawn when covered with a blanket of snow or hard frost as this will damage your lawn.
  • Remove heavy snow from greenhouses and cold frames to avoid damage to the glass.
  • Plant Amaryllis bulbs in pots now for a spectacular indoor flower display in early spring.
  • Clean all of your tools and gardening equipment ready for Spring.

Excellent service, friendly and knowledgeable staff and excellent product throughout, always good value for money. I have used Singletons Nursery for several years and it has never disappointed me or my family especially with the quality and selection of its products…10/10.

Topsoil seemed good, not as dark in colour as I expected but includes prolonged release fertiliser which hopefully will bring good results in the vegetable beds.

Had 90m of turf delivered last week, very pleasant guys delivered it. Turf easy to lay, good quality & has grown lovely.( all the rain has probably helped) All in all an easy shopping, experience, recommend 5*.

Quality of topsoil and turf the best I have seen. Perhaps not the cheapest, but proof that you get what you pay for.

Turf was great. Easy ordering and collection service. Lady at the till was very very nice and gave me a guide to laying the turf as I hadn’t done it before.
