During the month of January it is a good idea to consult your garden journal – it really is a great way of keeping all your thoughts and ideas in mind – it is easy to think that you will remember, but, if truth be told we forget lots of details. As we go through this month it will become apparent that the days are gradually lengthening and a feeling of optimism returns!
The start of the year is usually renowned for freezing weather and driving rain but we seem to have got off really lightly so far! The weather has been really lovely and it has been wonderful to spend time in the garden thinking that spring has nearly arrived! Of course there is still plenty of time for some severe frost and snow, and it is important not to be lulled into thinking that you can go ahead and do spring tasks just yet.
