November Gardening Tips

November is a perfect time to plant a tree, when dormant the tree will establish more successfully than during summer.

Now is a good time to wash, dry and store any used pots, seed trays and containers to remove overwintering pests and diseases that may infect your plants next year. Whilst you have your tidying head on, clean your tools and apply linseed oil to prevent rusting over the winter.

It’s a good idea to raise pots up off of the ground to prevent them from becoming water logged and to move any deciduous trees and shrubs whilst they are dormant, not forgetting to give them a good prune.

As the weather is starting to get colder don’t forget to make sure bird feeders and tables are topped up with food. We have a new range of bird food available from Ernest Charles. It is 100% Wheat Free and contains only the finest ingredients to keep the birds in your garden satisfied.

Plant up your tulip bulbs and you still have time to plant your daffodil bulbs. Don’t forget that now is the perfect time to plant your roses and the celebration roses are a great gift idea!
