November tasks

One of the unexpected gifts that November brings is the best of the autumn colour.

It is important to over winter your dahlias as a sharp frost can kill them completely. Lift them and put them in a dark, dry shed. Before putting them away, cut them back.

Make sure you clear fallen leaves from your lawn frequently. If left, they will kill the grass underneath and moss will flourish.

Prune back your climbing roses. Cut back thin growth to the base and prune thick, strong growth by two thirds to an outward facing bud.

November is a good time to sow spring harvesting broad beans and peas whilst the soil is still mild.

Prune back blackcurrants and tify your strawberry plants.

Happy gardening
