What to do in the garden in January and February for a jump on spring

6 min read

As gardeners, perhaps one of our new year’s resolutions could be to stay better on top of tasks to be done in the garden. Spring will be here before we know it, and we need to have our yards and gardens ready.

There’s little time to lose. Otherwise, we’ll be overwhelmed come spring. Gardening is a year-round activity, not just a spring one.

As I write this right at the end of the year, we still haven’t had a freeze. Looking out the window I see heliconias and angel’s trumpets still in bloom. If we have a freeze, later we will have to cut such tender plants back.
