Find garden advice for this time in my recent newsletter of 15th January.
Mid January 2022, be ready for the season. Although it’s quiet in the garden, you can potentially be busy with jobs to save time later. You could be preparing potato seeds, choosing varieties and ordering seeds, and cleaning the greenhouse glass! Also finish any mulching you have not done with a little compost on beds and woody material on pathways.
Maybe remove some old wooden sides if they are rotting, and you will probably find plenty of slugs on the inside. This also creates more space for plant roots and is especially worthwhile in polytunnels, where wooden sides take up valuable space and can be obstructive for reaching the middle of beds.
I recently updated the webpage about me. This led to trawling through photo archives which Edward recently made digital. I found the one below, 11 years old and on a course day at Lower Farm. That was my previous garden, 6 miles from here where I cropped 1 acre or 4000 m² no dig.
