Gardening Month By Month: November Projects
How to cope with leaves and garden rubbish
November is generally considered a dull, grey month. The leaves have all fallen from the trees by the end of the month. We know, however, that Nature is only sleeping, and that in a few months’ time it will awake again, and our work in the garden during the autumn months will indeed be well repaid.
A tall plant, bearing golden flowers in August and September, can be planted now. It is called Helenium, and can be obtained by separating a root from an old plant.
If Michaelmas Daisy roots were not planted last March, they can be set in the ground this month. They spread quickly, and bear from late August until the end of October, making a very good display for your garden.
The roots of old Delphinium plants can be divided, and each part replanted separately, using the outside pieces. This plant has splendid flowers, and you will be delighted to have at least one of these in your garden.
If you havent got one already now is the time to get youself a decent rake. This handy tool is very useful in collecting old leaves, and gathering garden rubbish.
