We have put our Garden & Landscape Maintenance Calendar together to give gardeners tips on the activities they should be doing on a month by month basis. These tips are base on our zone conditions (Zone 6) here in Western Michigan. Many of these activities will still be relative to other areas of the country, but may need to be done in different months. In zones 9-11 some overwintering activities may not apply. We have displayed our average temperature for each month. This should give you idea based on your average monthly temperature when you should be performing this certain tasks or activities.

No matter where you are, no matter what your climate, January presents some unique opportunities for gardening. In the north, gardens are sleeping and likely doing it under a blanket of snow, but that doesn’t mean you can’t plan for warmer days. And in southern climates, even if you can actively garden year round, January has its own planning opportunities.
