Here’s What You Can Prepare In Your Garden This November


  • This is the month to plant trees. Try the Amelanchier lamarckii, for white blossom in spring, purple berries in summer and luscious autumn foliage.


  • Clean down garden furniture, cover and put away for winter.


  • Plant Rembrandt tulips. Their flamed and feathered markings make them perfect for pots.


  • Raspberries really couldn’’t be easier at this time of year: plant bare-root canes of late-fruiting varieties Autumn Bliss or Joan J and have yourself a double crop of sweet fruits: instead of cutting down all the canes in winter, only cut half to give you a summer and an autumn crop.


  • Force scented narcissus Paperwhite indoors for Christmas flowering: settle bulbs on a layer of glass marbles or pebbles in clear vases, and keep water level just below base of bulbs.


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


  • Raise containers onto pot feet to prevent water logging. Insulate outdoor containers from frost – bubblewrap works well.


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


  • Use a seasonal bonfire – where this is allowed – to dispose of excess debris unfit for composting


  • Pick up diseased leaves from the base of roses to stop them harbouring black spots for next season.
