Jordan’s top tips for your November garden

Tips for your November garden

Leaf fall is at its peak and it seems like a never ending job to clear them. It is especially important to clear the leaves from lawns, ponds and beds. If leaves are left on the lawn and not cleared on a regular basis, many problems can occur.

On the other hand, these leaves can be very beneficial to the garden. Leaf mulch can be applied to the surface of the soil once decomposed slightly or shredded, once this has taken place and applied to your garden or allotment, after around a year or so, the leaves will decompose and add nutrients to the soil.

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 containers with either pot feet or bricks – avoiding the drainage hole to prevent waterlogging.

Plant out your winter bedding now. A range of winter pansies, violas, wall flowers, sweet William and polyanthus along with small evergreen shrubs, grasses, spring flowering bulbs, ivy and cyclamen. By having a mix of varieties and evergreens/ grasses, you are sure to have interest for at least 6-8 months and pansies and violas flower well into May / June.

Visit us here at Singletons to see our huge selection of winter bedding plants available now!

Excellent turf and topsoil delivered on time with a call to say they were on their way. Lawn was freshly cut on the day and has taken very quickly.

Wow, our first time visiting and I cannot wait to come back! Beautiful, inspiring surroundings. Products are first class and you can tell the staff who look after the place do it with love. We are so happy with our purchases and very reasonable prices. I’ll make a regular visit now! I haven’t tried the Potting Shed yet but heard wonderful things so will look forward to trying it. So lucky this is local to us. Thank you!
