Gardening Jobs for November
Winter will soon be here but the garden jobs are never finished. November is the last month that you can utilise to get your garden ready for the frost a snow before the weather really turns. We’ve put three of, in our opinion, the most important jobs that you need to do in your garden before winter hits.
Tidy, Tidy, Tidy!
The most important job on our list is tidying your garden. Clearing up clutter and putting away your belongings is an absolute must before the wet weather becomes a constant occurrence. To store tools and play equipment, our garden storage boxes and sheds provide weather resistant protection, preventing your things from becoming aged by the wind and rain. If you have any items in your garden that a strong breeze could get the better of, it would be a good idea to bring these inside or store in your garden storage facilities.
Planting Flowers, Fruit & Vegetables
To get your garden ready for blooming in the spring, there are a range of flowers, fruits and vegetables that are perfect for planting in November so they can germinate and bloom later on in spring. For each individual plant you may want to look up specific planting guides and rules to ensure that you get the best results. Our potting benches, planters and plant stands would be perfect for the first steps, providing a controlled and moveable area for germinating and nurturing your new plants.
Flowers, fruits and vegetables to plant now:
- Bare root hedging, roses, trees and shrubs, including fruit bearing ones
- Japanese maple
- Garlic, onions and shallots
Add to Your Compost
Most of the leaves have now fallen off of the trees which may have created a mess in your garden. Fear not as you can add these to your compost to bulk it out and add nutrition for your plants. Compost is any gardeners best friend so taking advantage of nature’s version of moulting should be a given. It is also a good idea to give your current greenery a once over to make sure it’s all healthy. You can add the pruned pieces from your plants to your compost heap, ready for you to use in the spring.
