In January, the days are short, the sky is cloudy, and the garden is mostly covered with fluffy white snow. But this does not mean that this month has nothing to do.
In the flower garden, you must ensure that the plants are not affected by frost; Watch for damage to trees and shrubs from strong winds. From time to time, remove accumulated snow from the branches.
If the weather is mild (up to 1-2 ° C below zero), you can trim the hedge, but if the frost is stronger, you should not do this, because this can lead to negative consequences for plants.
Flowering shrubs such as forsythia, lilac, wisteria, acacia and others should not be pruned in winter if you want them to bloom.
Plants that winter in crates or in tubs in the basement should be lightly watered and ventilated regularly to reduce the risk of rotting. Evergreens should also be watered, but only when you notice that the soil is almost dry. If plants hibernate in humid rooms, there is a risk of powdery mildew, which can be prevented by regular ventilation of the room.
House dust should be regularly removed from indoor plants so that the leaves receive as much light as possible. Spray water on plants regularly, especially if the air in the room is dry.
Provide enough light for the flowers. Most indoor plants in winter are at rest, and do not need fertilizer.
For the garden, you must prepare seedlings and the necessary seeds. At the end of the month, it is advisable to sow seedlings of early and cauliflower. If you planted vegetables in greenhouses in the fall, be careful not to get sick.
In the orchard, the old cracked bark of trees needs to be scraped off if this has not been done before. Also remove dry and damaged branches, if any. Low bushes bend to the ground.
Little tips for ornamental plants in January:
- If you have a greenhouse, at the end of January, you can sow the seeds of petunias, begonias and primroses. They need a temperature of about 18-20 ° C.
- If you want to plant lobelia or snapdragon in the garden, start growing seedlings this month. About 5 months will pass from seed germination to the appearance of the first flowers. If you grow an olive tree in a pot, put it in a bright and cool place for the winter.
- If you grow plants on a glazed terrace or balcony, make sure that their leaves do not remain wet in the evenings, as they can be affected by lower temperatures. Therefore, do not spray water in the evening, but only in the morning.
