November gardening tips

  1. Protect roses during the cold winter months with mulch around the base 
  2. Roses that have been badly affected by disease this year should be pruned severely now. 
  3. •   Add shredded leaves to the base of Ferns to protect the growing tips. Remove when new growth appears in the spring. 
  4. •   October, NOVEMBER and March are the three best months for planting Azaleas, Rhododendron, Camellia and other hardy broad leafed ever greens. 
  5. •   Water perennial primrose deeply, when rains are scarce and mulch to protect from severe wind and weather. 
  6. •   Plant new peonies outdoors. Dig up and divide mature clumps using a sharp knife to separate roots into sections with at least three to five eyes. Replant.
