Garden Tips for January

  • Keep an eye on the weather report - protect frost-tender plants when the temperature falls below 32 degrees.
  • Divide perennials like daylilies and chrysanthemums.  Prune crepe myrtles, cane berries, and roses, and clean-up trimmings.
  • Prune plum, pluot, apple, and pear trees 15-20%; cherries 10%; and peaches 50%.
  • Mulch, water, and cover tender plants to protect from frost. Be sure to remove coverings during the day.
  • The birds stay in Northern California through the winter. Since flowers are scarce in most gardens now, it’s important to keep your feeder filled; clean and refill it every few days.
  • Check dates of Master Gardener classes.
