Garden and Gardener's tips of the month - November

November when the winds and rains are on the increase. Leaves are falling rapidly, and tender plants will need protecting from frost, gales and freezing rains. Move them to a sheltered spot or better still into a greenhouse, but if you can't, it is still worth wrapping plants or pots in situ. Remember winter can be a tough time for wildlife in general so ensure supplies of water and food well topped up.

Top ten jobs for this month

1, Move tender plants, including aquatic ones, into the greenhouse if possible.
2, Cut back perennials that have died down
3. Divide herbaceous perennials and rhubarb crowns
4, Pruning and renovation of many hedges, shrubs and deciduous trees can be carried out from now throughout the dormant season. Their are exceptions like Prunus species (e.g. ornamental cherries, plums and almonds), as these are vulnerable to silver leaf if pruned in the autumn or winter. Evergreens are best left until the spring.
5, Prune climbing roses and lightly prune bush roses. Reducing height will prevent wind-rock as they tend to be shallow rooted and can become loose in the soil if buffeted by strong winds.
6, Check tree stakes and ties are secure and will withstand the winter weather; ensure that ties are not strangling trunks or branches.
7, Harvest the last of the fruits - apples, pears, grapes and nuts. Check for disease on fruit trees such as apples and pears.
8, Now is the last chance to mow lawns and trim hedges and to renovate old lawns or create new grassed areas by laying turf.
9, Clear up fallen autumn leaves regularly placing them on the compost heap or better still into separate pens to rot down into leaf-mould. Use a mower or shredder first as it help them break down quicker.
10, Sit back and enjoy those plant and seed catalogues as now is the time to plan for next years glorious displays.
