Around the garden job checklist

6 - 12 January 2014

It's time to...

  • Cover soil with cloches or sheets of polythene to keep it dry and frost-free before digging
  • Place a ball in a pond to prevent ice completely covering the surface
  • Take your petrol mower to a dealer for maintenance
  • Finish collecting leaves and clearing old plants from beds and borders
  • Wrap tender plants, such as olives and palms, to give them extra weather protection
