garden tip

Plant parsley, celery, leeks and onions early in the month. You can also plant these vegetables indoors. They do require a little more time to grow. Plant cool-season cole crops mid-January or February. These crops will take eight to ten weeks to grow. When bare-root strawberries are available in nurseries, plant them in January. You can also plant fruit trees in January.

If you want to plant perennial plants, consider Heuchera. This flowering perennial is also a reliable and durable color-adder. Its flowers are durable and will continue to bloom into the spring. You will be happy even in colder weather because of the color-packed flowers. If you are looking for something that can be grown inside your house, consider houseplants. It's great to have a plant which provides structure and color all year long, even during the winter.
