WHILE the weather might have missed the Dry January memo, now is a great time to get out in the garden.
This is the message from Squire’s Garden Centres who says that wet or dry, there is a lot to be done to prepare for the summer months.
“Rain is a gardener’s friend,” a spokesperson said. “After all, it helps plants grow.
“Gardening is a perfect activity to enjoy safely at home, so get outside and get gardening.
“The fresh air is great for your mental health and wellbeing too.”
According to Squires, January is a great time to:
- Deadhead winter pansies
- Feed fruit trees and bushes
- Prune hedges such as hawthorn and privet
- Firm shrubs that may have been loosed by the wind
- Plant hardy plants such as roses, shrubs, hedging and ornamental trees
- Add vibrant colour with primroses, winter flowering heathers and mini Tete-a-Tete daffodils
Greenery can be planted throughout the winter, as long as the ground is not frozen.
And Squire’s Garden Centres is available for delivery throughout lockdown.
