Garden Calendar

November

Lawns:

  • Make what is probably the final cut of the year. Ensure the mower blades are at their highest setting.

Flower Border:

  • Finish planting tulips.
  • Continue to plant and divide perennials.
  • Plant deciduous hedges.
  • Plant new deciduous shrubs and trees.
  • If you need to move established plants, cut back longer shoots and dig out the plant with as large a root ball as possible for replanting in a prepared planting hole deeper and wider than the root ball.

Vegetable Garden:

  • Dig over and add well rotted organic matter such as homemade compost or composted stable manure.

Fruit Garden:

Winter prune established bushes and fruit trees (not stone fruits such as plums and cherries).
