If one of your New Year’s resolutions this year is to start gardening, I’ve got plenty of tips and tricks to help you get started. One of the best things you can do in January to prepare for the growing season is to plan what you’re going to plant and when. If planting up a vegetable patch is your plan, I have a handy vegetable planting calendar here to help you get started.
Houseplants are a wonderful way to brighten up your home again after you have taken down all of your vibrant and colourful festive decorations. This week is Houseplant Week UK 2024, running from Monday 8th of January to the 14th of January, the perfect opportunity to celebrate your indoor plants. Take this as the chance to invest in a couple of new plants, share your tried and true houseplant care tips, or learn something new about plants you already have. See my Houseplant Week UK competitions below for the chance to win some amazing prizes.
Make sure to keep an eye on ITV on Sunday mornings from 10am, where you can see me in upcoming features on Love Your Weekend with Alan Titchmarsh for some great gardening tips to start your year.
