Jobs to tick off your list in November
Although the season for cosy fires, woolly jumpers and comfort food is fast approaching. It’s worth remembering that a little time in the garden now will have its benefits. Here are some things you could be doing in the garden in November.
Perennial plants will have seen better days. Cutting the stems just above ground level and applying a layer of mulch will protect the roots and suppress the weeds.
Whether in the ground, pots or containers November is a good time to plant tulip bulbs. Be sure to plant 3 times to the depth of the bulb and if the soil is heavy add grit for drainage.
There’s no need to wait for spring for some colour why not showcase some winter pansies, polyanthus and primroses in hanging baskets, window boxes or patio pots where they can be appreciated just outside your door.
