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.



Nicki Jackson is Blue Daisy's garden designer & owner. A former HR consultant Nicki still finds the time to run Blue Daisy, design gardens and planting plans, write a blog, keep our gardening clients happy and offer IIP advice and outplacement support through Blue Daisy Consultancy.
