November GARDEN TASKS
•While the flowers are at their best, it’s a good time for a party! Have a family occasion, fundraiser, or any kind of party in the garden. Just add a fire to cook on and to keep yourself warm if it’s a chilly November evening.
•Stake tall growing plants for protection against strong winds.
•Tidy up early flowering plants to make room for the current surge of growth.
•Fill in gaps with annuals or add new perennials. Being able to buy potted plants these days means you can provide a bit of instant colour if you feel there is a lack.
•Seed sowing, transplanting, manuring, mulching, staking, tying up, netting in – it’s a busy time getting main crop foods established.
•Main crop potatoes can still go in and should romp away now the soil is warm.
•Strawberries can be netted as they begin to ripen. Clean fruit is desirable so a light layer of mulch
