There is still gardening to be done in November. Now is a great time to get your garden in shape and ready to blossom when spring arrives.
- Prune – Prune the fruity ones like gooseberries, blackcurrants, apple and pear trees.
- Tulips – It is the perfect time to plant tulips and other spring bulbs like daffodils.
- New Fruit – November is a good time to plant soft fruit bushes such as raspberries and blackberries.
- Protect – Raise patio pots on pot feet and wrap in hessian to protect against winter rains and icy conditions.
- Mow – Mow the lawn, clean up all fallen leaves and tidy up shrubs and bushes.
- Sow – Sow sweet peas in a cold frame of greenouse for earlier flowers next year.
- Plant – Cheer up your outside spaces with winter flowering plants such as violas and cyclamens.
- The Birds – Make sure the bird feeder is full of seeds like sunflower seeds. Fill the birdbath and keep it ice free so the birds can wash. This keeps them warm in icy weather.
