Growing Guide – January


Jobs To Be Getting On With

The gardening calendar starts off quietly and the beginning of the year is a good time to snuggle down in your favourite armchair with a selection of gardening books and seed catalogues to gain inspiration as to what you want to grow. It can be overwhelming so take a look at our handy January Growing Guide for easy jobs.

No doubt you will discover many new varieties that you will want to experiment with but do remember that the plants you decide to grow must be able to happily co-exist side by side – a multitude of plants all requiring widely different temperature, light and humidity levels are unlikely to thrive, unless the greenhouse has been designed from the outset to have separate partitioned zones in which different growing environments can be maintained.

This quiet time ahead of the main growing season provides the perfect opportunity to check over the aluminium greenhouse and make sure that all is functioning as it should, particularly once you have had your greenhouse for a while. Our ‘Clean & Care’ service is the ideal way to ensure your greenhouse is in tip-top condition and looking at her best for the spring – please contact us on 01730 826900 for further information.

A society grows great when old men plant trees whose shade they know they shall never sit in.
