The November checklist for garden activities.
Deer Protection Apply protective coatings to discourage deer from eating shrubs, trees and evergreens.
Mulch Gardens Lay mulch down on gardens leaving perennial crowns uncovered so they don’t rot from too much moisture.
Final Weeding Pull any surviving perennial weeds so they don’t get a head start on your garden plants next spring
Trees and Shrubs Move and plant deciduous trees and shrubs
Finish Planting Bulbs Finish planting spring blooming bulbs before ground freezes. If surface freezes a bit, dig hole, plant and flood with water.
Catalogs Stack seed catalogs in a neat pile so you can find them easily.
Antidesiccant coatings Spray broadleaf plants and tender evergreens with antidesiccant to stop them from losing moisture during warm winter days (spray top and bottom)
Check Summer Bulbs For Rot If you’re saving summer blooming bulbs such as Dahlia, November is a good month to check them for beginning stages of rot.
Mow grass one more time: Run the mower around lawn to chew up remaining leaves. Then winterize gas so moisture doesn’t condense in the tank
Start Dreaming The end of November is the start of garden dreaming month. 🙂 Enjoy
