Jim Saul warms us with his gardening guide to January.
The hours of daylight in winter are frustratingly short – just think what you could get done at this time of year with 10 – 12 hours of daylight!
What with the wind, rain, fog and ice (but rarely snow here in Pembrokeshire) it is now the time to reflect on what went right or wrong last year in the garden.
Perhaps some beds or borders need reshaping?
Are some plants now too close to one another or are there large gaps to fill?
Is there a rotten fence post or some uneven slabs?
