Mony has also shared gardening tasks to do in January on his blog.
He has shared the best time to “mulch”.
Monty wrote: “The best time to put down a mulch is whenever you get round to do it, because the pros of a good organic mulch – which are weed suppression, moisture retention and improved soil structure and fertility – always outweigh any cons such as suppressing ‘little treasure’ seedlings.
“However, we do try and mulch all our borders in January because this gives time in autumn for the borders to die back gracefully and allow birds to eat all seeds and berries but is early enough not to suppress the growth of bulbs such as alliums and tulips that start to appear by the end of February.”
