The seasoned gardeners among you will probably be more than aware of how much can still be done in the garden in November, for those of you just joining the gardening game or looking for inspiration, or indeed are a in need of a gardener to put some life back into your garden, have a look below:


Plant out your bulbs ready for a glorious spring garden:

Plant daffodils
Plant tulips
Plant hyacinth bulbs

Is the garden looking a bit dull?

If you can’t wait that long and need some colour in the garden now, plant heather and trailing ivy.

Pruning fruit trees

Now is the time to prune apple and pear trees, you have right up until February.

Don’t get carried away prune the plum trees, they won’t thank you for it, hold off until mid summer on these.

Get fruity

Plant your currant bushes and raspberry canes now for a deliciously fruit crop in 2019.

Lawn care

Gather up the pesky leaves before they do permanent damage to the lawn. If you are still mowing, set the mower up a level for a higher cut.There is still time for aerating the lawn and whilst you are out in the garden take care of the edging to keep things neat and tidy for the New Year.

Wishing your garden had a bit more life in November?

Think ahead to next year in your planning, consider some lovely red ivy plants, grasses and cornus which will add some colour and texture during the later months.
