Check out our handy list of November to-do’s to keep you growing and outside before snowfall in this week’s blog November Gardening Tips!
Lawn & Pond
|If you run your pond pump during the winter, raise it on to a ledge in the pond to recirculate only the top layer of water.|
|Remove pond netting and clean the bottom of the pond after the leaves have fallen.|
|Clean the skimmer basket. Check less often after all the leaves have fallen.|
|Trim waterlilies two inches above the crown and move to a deeper part of the pond.|
|Add cold-water beneficial bacteria.|
|If keeping your pond running during the winter, add pond de-icer.|
|Last chance to apply fertilizer to your lawn!|
|Maintain a clean lawn by removing leaves, toys and tool to keep it healthy.|
|As long as the grass is growing, keep mowing!|
|Keep watering plants as needed until frost.|
|Continue weeding as much as possible.|
|Divide overgrown perennials and replant. No room? They make a good Christmas present in a pot for a gardening friend (make sure to tag them).|
|Start paper whites and other indoor forcing bulbs for Christmas color. They need approximately seven weeks to bloom.|
|Plant evergreens, perennials, containerized fruit & shade trees.|
|Prune back Rose of Sharon and P.G. hydrangeas. Tidy up perennials.|
|The best selection of fall bulbs is available now. Wildwood Outdoor Living has the largest selection around, online and in-store! Be sure to plan out your garden ahead of your visit to make sure you have the right growing conditions for your bulb choices.|
|Add organic compost to beds and borders.|
|Cover your compost piles to retain nutrients.|
|Start seeds indoors according to your region!|
|Tie up cypress and globe cedar trees so heavy snows will not destroy their shape.|
|Construct a comport bin and create your own organic rich soil with garden refuse and leaves. Use Rot-it to quicken the process.|
|All your bulbs should be dusted with sulfur or bulb dust prior to storing them away.|
|Before storing all your tools, use rubbing alcohol to disinfect and clean them. This will prevent rust and disease.|
