January jobs in the garden

January can be a bit hit ‘n’ miss in the garden, the weather is very changeable and a little chilly so when the sun pops its head out we take full advantage this week a bit more digging and the continual weed battle. We try to compost as much garden waste as possible and some we burn in our fire pit.

We took advantage of a chilly but bright day to empty the fire pit and sort the ash, luckily we can mix most of the ash in with our compost which we reuse in the garden. However you do need to be mindful about what you burn, as some weeds can survive the most intense heat and you can spread them right back on your borders.......
