There’s nothing quite like January for wiping the slate. The start of the year brings the perfect opportunity to spend some quality time in your garden and get a kick-start on all the important jobs that your garden is craving. There's no time like the present!
Job of the week: Give tools some TLC
Your tools work hard for you all year – and they’ll continue to do so if you set time aside now to return them to tip-top condition. Sand down the shafts of forks, spades and rakes with fine-grade sandpaper, then rub furniture oil into the wood. Sharpen blades with a whetstone before storing in a dry shed, ready to go as you need them in spring. If unfortunately your tools are beyond help, then don't worry! We've plenty of brands to choose from here at the Garden Centre including Wilkinson Sword and Gardman.
