Gardening jobs for November

    

Event details

This event begins 11/01/2021 and repeats every year forever

Leaves are falling rapidly, and wind and rain are on the increase. Tender plants will need protecting from frost, gales and freezing rains. Move plants into the greenhouse, or into a sheltered spot, but if you can't, it is worth wrapping plants or pots. Remember winter can be a tough time for birds in terms of water and food, so keep supplies well topped up.


This month's main gardening jobs are:

  1. Clear up fallen leaves - especially from lawns, ponds and beds

  2. Raise containers onto pot feet to prevent waterlogging

  3. Plant tulip bulbs for a spring display next year

 

Here are some more jobs and reminders for November as circulated by the RHS...

  • Clear up fallen leaves - especially from lawns, ponds and beds

  • Raise containers onto pot feet to prevent waterlogging

  • Plant tulip bulbs for a spring display next year

  • Prune roses to prevent wind-rock

  • Plant out winter bedding

  • Cover brassicas with netting if pigeons are a problem

  • Insulate outdoor containers from frost - bubblewrap works well

  • Stop winter moth damage to fruit trees using grease bands around the trunks

  • Put out bird food to encourage winter birds into the garden

  • Use a seasonal bonfire - where this is allowed and if appropriate - to dispose of excess debris unfit for composting

 

Please visit the RHS website for more detailed guidance on each of this month's jobs above, plus much more.
