January is considered by many to be the longest month of the year.

Christmas is over and everyone is already waiting for spring.

Unfortunately, one has to wonder that there are still two difficult winter months, the sky is overcast outside, it gets dark early and it is often cold, there is still a lot left until Easter...

This is a pessimistic man's point of view. Let's turn things around!

January also has a more exciting side, because then we start with a new, clean slate! The beginning of a new year is a time when many people decide to start something and make a change.

We strayed a bit from our normal everyday routine over the Christmas and holiday period and now need to shake things up again in the first month of the year. Let January be your planning time!

PLANNING

Let's think things through carefully and try to stick to our tentative plans for the year.

GARDEN TO DO IN JANUARY

People often make the mistake of closing down during the winter months and rarely staying outside even though they still need plenty of fresh air.

 In this case, it is worth taking a look at the garden roosters:

In the face of more severe frosts, it is advisable to check the proper insulation of garden fittings. In this case, delays or problems that have occurred can be made up for even more easily than at the end of February or the beginning of March.

Here's your chance to clean your tools:

These weeks are also great for repairing gardening tools, so you don't have to grind and sharpen the hoe or secateurs when needed.

In this case, it is advisable to prune in winter

Although winter isn't usually a time for pruning, there are strains that can be pruned in the midst of their winter dreams during these months.

 During this time, for example, grapes, autumn raspberries, figs can be cut.

 Birds and other pets should not be forgotten either.

It is still worth thinking about wintering birds at home. Feeders can be set up for them in the garden and ensured that they are always full of food.
