Jobs to do in the Garden in November
Winter is coming...
Leaves are falling all over the place and wind and rain are on the increase. Tender plants will need protecting from frost, gales and freezing rain. Move plants into a greenhouse or into a sheltered spot. If you can’t move them it is worth wrapping them up in situ with fleece. Remember that winter can be tough for birds as well as plants so keep supplies of food and water well topped up.
- Clear up fallen leaves from lawns, ponds and beds – leaves, leaves and more leaves!
- Raise pots onto pot feet to prevent waterlogging.
- Plant tulip bulbs for a spring display next year.
- Prune roses to prevent wind-rock.
- Plant out winter bedding.
- Insulate outdoor containers from frost and fleece tender plants.
- Cover Brassicas with netting if pigeons are a problem.
- Put out bird food to encourage winter birds into the garden.
- Order seeds for next year.
- Order your winter warmers and Gardening Christmas Presents!
