January - Now what do we do?

Are you thinking about the kinds of things you could be doing in your yard or garden area about now?  Well here are a few suggestions.
 
 13225 Bare-Roots1.  Bare Root fruit trees.  Plant apples, apricots, peaches, and plum fruit trees right now.  They are readily available at most home and garden centers and local nurseries.  Choose low chill varieties like Anna, Dorsett Golden, Ein Shemer, apples;  Blenheim, gold kist or katy apricots.  Bonanza !!, desertgold or floridaprince peaches or beauty plum.
Bare root roses are also being offered.  You can plant these directly into the ground or use a decorative large garden planter.  You can find many in light weights like Poly Resin or fiberglass. 
 
2.  Sow seeds of cilantro, dill, epazote, fennel, and parsley in moist soil, then sprinkle the soil with water after sowing.  Continue to water regularly.  Sow seeds of heirloom peppers such as Ancho, a wide, dark green poblano type that is medium hot.  For tomatoes consider ruffled Pink Accordion, a large sweet heirloom perfect for stuffing.  Plant in Poly Resin.
 
 13227 Iris3.  Fertilize bearded iris plants either in the ground or planted in lovely garden pottery.  Spread all purpose bulb fertilizer around the plants, scratching it in with a rake or hand trowel.  Water thoroughly toward the end of the month.  Protect your potted plants from cold.  Most plants withstand cold better if they are well irrigated before a frost.  Keep an eye on the weather report, and water deeply when a frost is forecast.  Move tender plants under a overhang or into a garage.  To protect citrus, place a tall stake around the tree and drape with burlap or frost blanket.
 
 13228 Pruning4.  Now is the perfect time to prune your rose bushes.  Choose five or six sturdy canes and prune them back to 18", then remove the weak, inward facing and crossing canes and branches.  Dab cuts with household glue to discourage borer infestations.  If you don't cut them back now, when spring arrives and they start to grow they will be wiry and spindly.  They branches will droop and not flower well.
 
These are all easy and good things to be doing now so get out there!
