The second month of Winter in recent years has been quite mild, weather wise. Maintenance tasks continue, tools are fixed, fences are repaired and winter projects are completed. Some crops can be sown now but if you haven’t got the luxury of a heated greenhouse, these can be kept until the warmer months. The sun remains lower in the sky and therefore some parts of the garden may not have enough sunlight to defrost areas, keep an eye on your pond to make sure it defrosts on a regular basis.
Average daylight in the UK during January is 8 hours with an average temperature of 5.9°c
