    January Gardening tips



    Well here's wishing you a Happy New Year! This is still a great month you work on your garden
    (if it's not too cold for you). Here's a list of suggested task for January.

  • Water once or twice this month, yes even plants that are dormant.

  • Use dormant oil on plants, and trees that lose their leaves during winter.

  • Intead of raking up all the fallen leaves, try incorporating them back into your soil or start up a compost pile. (compost maker is available)

  • Prune all dormant plants now, keep in mind the best rule of thumb for pruning is to have a reason for every cut you make!



  • Prune roses now thru early February (stop buy for a pruning lesson).

  • Fertilize your fescue, blugrass, or ryegrass lawn if it not looking as green as is should. Use 16-8-8 with iron, zinc and sulphur now.

  • Our roses should be ready to plant by mid January so hurry for best selection. We carry Jackson & Perkins roses.

  • Do not cut back oleander just yet. It is best to wait until late March.

  • Plant fruit and shade trees now to help establish roots before our hot dry winds begin.

  • Don't forget now is the time to plant pansies, snapdragon, viola, calendula, primrose, and perennials. These items will begin to arrive weekly at your local nurseries.
