Jordan’s Top Tips for your November Garden

Top Tips for your November Garden

November is one of my favorite months for soo many reasons. Autumn strolls, frosty morning, blue skies and the sound of leaves crunching beneath your feet. The almost too good to be true landscapes of red, yellow and orange, filling the view with what look like flames. This is nature changing, preparing for the winter but there are still a lot of things that you can be doing in your garden this November.

One of the biggest jobs in November especially is leaf clearing. Whether you have hundreds of trees in your garden or none at all, I’m pretty much certain that you will have leaves to clear. Yes, it can be a long, never-ending task however it’s not all bad. Fallen leaves are great for creating leaf mold – a great mulch for your beds and border and especially good for allotment patches to help prepare for the next growing season. It’s a great water retainer and prevents water loss, keeping the soil beneath nice and moist. It also reduces evaporation and absorbs rainwater to reduce runoff. Most importantly, keep lawns and ponds free of leaves.

Here at Singletons, we are bursting with Winter Bedding and other winter plants to brighten up your gardens. We have plenty to choose from including Pansies, Polyanthus, Wallflowers, Heathers, Ornamental Brassica, Evergreen shrubs and much more at great prices! Come and see us today to make the most of our excellent prices or get some expert advice from me or one of our other Horticultural Experts!

More quick tips:

  • November is the ideal time to plant tulip bulbs for a spring display next year. TOP TIP – planting 2 or 3 layers of bulbs in a container will result in a fuller pot and the container will be of interest for longer.
  • Encourage winter birds into the garden by putting out bird food. A mix of nuts, seed and fat balls usually does the job and the birds really appreciate the food, especially in the colder months.
  • Raise your containers up off the floor using pot feet or a house brick to prevent waterlogging.

Excellent quality perennials for my garden and good value bags of compost. Delivered within a couple of days.

Ordering from Singleton’s couldn’t have been easier, and the delivery was very quick, especially in view of the current situation with garden centres not being open to the public. I was delighted with the quality of the compost and the driver was very helpful in asking the best place for it to be unloaded. Couldn’t have been a better service.

A really good quality Topsoil and great Turf. We laid 15 rolls on top of 2 tonnes of Topsoil and all have caught well. The delivery driver was great with the children and showed off the crane.
