Whereabouts are you? What are your soil conditions and temperatures? What sort/ style of garden are you after?
Theres not a lot that can be planted at the moment other than bare rooted trees, and those only if the soil isn't frozen and has been well prepared.
January is a time for browsing the catalogues, looking at the bare bones of your garden and making plans.
Do you have a Propagator? That will allow you to get an early start in the spring, but only if you have a greenhouse or similar to move your seedlings on to once they've been pricked out.
