New years resolutions

New year’s resolutions for gardeners

Starting a new year is great for many reasons. It’s all about change – developing good habits, and getting rid of the bad ones. If you’d like to develop your gardening skills this year, why not create some new year’s resolutions for gardening! We’ve listed a few below to help get you started.

Plant fruit trees

Is there anything better than having your own, homegrown fruit right outside your door? Growing your own fruit trees has many benefits. Firstly, it allows you to take care of your wellbeing with organic foods. Secondly, it can also contribute eco-friendly solutions to global issues; protect wildlife, rewild natural lands, and conserve the environment. Lastly, you can enjoy pristine and tranquil scenery straight from your own backyard.

Add more bird feeders to your garden

Feeding the wild birds is so important – in the colder months they can starve from lack of food resources. It’s always a great idea to hang up plenty of bird feeders to ensure they’re always well fed. Take care of the wild birds and you’ll be rewarded with their beautiful song throughout the year.
