Gardening Tips for January for Inglewood, CA

Southwest Region

  • Fertilize your houseplants with a water-soluble fertilizer and remember to water them. Be sure not to overwater, as that can lead to plant diseases.
  • Start preparing your garden soil for spring planting. You can also prepare new soil for flower, rose, or shrub beds. Mix in organic material to give plants a healthy start.
  • Control the weeds in your garden while they are young and tender, or before they sprout. Remove weeds before they seed, so you can avoid them in your garden.
  • If there is a possibility that the temperature will drop to the 20s, you should protect your plants from frost damage.
  • Test your lawn and garden soil for its pH levels. If your soil is too acidic, you have time to fix it before the growing season arrives.
