secateurs-240A few jobs for this month:

  • Clear up and keep all fallen leaves for mulch
  • Get your tulip bulbs in the ground as soon as possible
  • Mow the lawn probably for the last time this year
  • Check trees and shrubs for damaged branches and remove them so they don’t get whipped off in high winds and cause damage to property or plants
  • Plant fruit trees
  • Lift and divide Rhubarb
  • Make sure you get your winter digging done so the frost can break down the clods and improve the structure
  • Lift and store Dahlias in a dry, frost-free place
  • Check fences and trellis and make sure they are sturdy to withstand any gales
  • Clear out bird boxes and remember to keep feeding the birds!

Spotlight on houseplants:

  • Make sure all houseplants are getting enough light as the light levels are reducing
  • Don’t overwater house plants as this can cause problems, so too can rapid temperature fluctuations – try and put them in an area where the temperature will be fairly static unlike for example, a conservatory or by the back door!
  • Central heating is a problem for plants, those with brown tips are suffering from dry conditions which means they need to be kept damper so mist them occasionally.
