Pruning jobs to do in the garden in January

Posted on January 09, 2015 by Potter & Rest

Now is the time of the month to be getting on with some pruning:  

1. Continue to prune wisteria

2. Remove old hellebore leaves as this will make the flowers more visible when they bloom

3. Cut back any damaged, diseased or old stems from willow trees

4. Cut down the old stems of perennial plants

5. Cut back any old foliage from ornamental grasses to within a few centimetres of the ground

6. Remove any yellowing leaves from winter brassicas because they may encourage pests and diseases

7. If you haven’t already done so prune apple and pear trees

8. Blackcurrant, gooseberry and redcurrant bushes can be pruned too.
