Now is the Time: January

Whether it’s cold and snowy or chilly and rainy, wherever you are, the garden (and its inhabitants!) needs just a bit of attention in January. Bundle up, grab a tool or two, and head outside. Here are a few things to consider this month.

Repurpose That Christmas Tree: Recycle your Christmas tree into a snacking station for birds with homemade garlands of peanuts, popcorn, cranberries, and fruits strung through the boughs. Or, cut branches from the tree and place over perennials in your garden. This can help plants survive a freeze and thaw spell.
