It’s time to tidy the garden for its winter sleep, because you don’t want to be walking on a frosty lawn. Deciduous trees and shrubs and woody ornamental plants need their last trim. Keep paths clear and take care of planters for a final winter blush. Don’t forget our critter friends – consider putting up a squirrel feeder to distract them from taking food you’ve put out for the birds.
There’s still time in November to start amaryllis bulbs for a Christmas flowering. Then it’s time to sit back and enjoy those seed catalogues and look forward to a new season.
