Flowering In: January

In January, gardeners can engage in various activities to ensure a productive and vibrant garden. In colder climates, it is essential to protect plants from frost by using covers or moving potted plants indoors. This month is also ideal for pruning deciduous trees and shrubs while they are dormant, promoting healthy growth in the upcoming spring.  While January may not be characterized by an abundance of flowering plants outdoors, some hardy varieties defy the winter chill. Winter-flowering plants like hellebores, witch hazel, and snowdrops can add a touch of color and elegance to the garden landscape, brightening the winter scenery. These resilient plants serve as beacons of beauty in the midst of the season's dormancy, signaling the promise of renewal as the days gradually lengthen.
