GARDENING CALENDAR NOVEMBER

The clocks have gone back and we now close earlier when it gets dark.

At the start of the month we’ll be busy potting up our new rose stock. It’s a great time to visit us for choice and variety.

If you’re after any bare-root hedging or specific tree requests, have a word with us. We may be able to source field-grown stock for you.

Your garden might be looking a bit untidy with leaves falling from trees. Maybe it’s time to invest in a leaf grabber or leaf rake‍‍‍? Also we have garden tidy sheets, pop-up bags, jumbo garden bags and rubb‍‍‍ish sacks. And incinerators!

The shop will be decked out with all things Christmassy if you want to get started for the festive period. Our first Christmas trees arrive in time for the last weekend of the month.

Continue to divide and replant herbaceous perennials.

Plant fruit trees.

Bare-root rose plants can be planted any time from now until March.

You can plant winter/spring bedding now.

Things to do in the garden

Continue picking apples and pears but allow late-ripening varieties time to mature.

Once you’ve cleaned the greenhouse, line with polythene or bubble wrap for insulation.

Dig over the vegetable garden, working in manure or compost.

Tidy up after the old year and get ready for the new year.

Lift dahlia tubers, begonia and gladiolus corms after first frosts. Store in a dry frost-free place.

Wash and disinfect pots that are now empty and that you want to use again.

Now’s the time to start filling up your bird feeders.

Raise pots off the ground with pot feet to prevent waterlogging. Protect delicate plants with fleece which allows the plants to breathe.
