What needs doing this month

 Jobs For January.

 Resist removing any seedheads left standing in the garden, they can look good in the frost, will provide food for birds and give insects a winter home.

 Plant up a winter pot with plants such as hardy cyclamen, winter pansies, heuchera and trailing ivy to give some colour at the front or back door.

 Leeks can be left in the ground until needed as they can cope with the winter weather, harvest on frost free days though so as not to damage the roots.

 Prune autumn flowering raspberry canes down to the ground and then mulch the soil to protect the roots.
