January in the Midwestern Garden

The days slowly begin to lengthen in the January garden, though most are gray and overcast. Gardeners take a tromp through snowy woods, then curl up with a book to dream of spring.

What to See

  • Evergreens come into their own as other shrubs and trees stand leafless.
  • Birds continue to dine on any remaining holly berries and winterberries and visit baths and pools of water that remain unfrozen.
  • Stalks of perennials peek out from under a cover of snow or form hillocks in brown and gray garden beds.
