November Gardening Reminders

In some regions, gardeners are finding that it’s just too cold to be outside. Don’t spend the season mourning the loss of your summer garden, though. Get your growing fix by tending to your forgotten houseplants, attending a gardening workshop, or getting ready for the holidays with some amaryllis and other favorites. Here are my monthly suggestions for November.

Personally, I like to start thinking about my plans for next year’s garden. I clean my gardening equipment before storing, check my stored produce (like winter squash) and remove any that is damaged or rotten, and I may even start building new garden structures for the upcoming growing season.

And don’t forget that November is perfect for pruning! I use branches and other pruning remnants to hold down mulch for the upcoming winter. Of course, soon you’ll want to cover flowers to protect from early cold snaps.

If you’re like me, you love the birds that late autumn and winter bring. In these months, I stock up on birdseed, and continuously check my birdbath to make sure it has fresh water for those over-wintering birds.

If you have any good fall gardening tips, please share it with everyone by leaving a comment below!

  • I always do my pruning in November :D and have just bought a brand new bird feeder to attach to the most ‘bird popular’ branch in my tree aha. I’ve stocked up on seeds and created my own fat balls too.

    I recommend fat balls as in the coming Winter months birds tend to know whats good for them and will fly miles just to get their beaks into them.

    :) Thankyou for the tips.

    I have app. 2000 blackberry plants. Arapaho, Navaho, Black Satin, Triple Crown, and Ouachita. I get on average 3 gallons ( 15 lbs. ) per plant. BUT I do not use any fertilizer anymore. I have found that when I used fertilizer, my plants would grow longer vines and/or canes, without producing anymore fruit. My upright canes will get app. 18 ft. long on trained on my trellis’. Also instead of cutting the tops out of my upright canes I train them to my trellis’ like the vines and semi upright canes. The only time I cut the canes is when they reach a hight of 6 feet, after they have been trained to the trellis.

    Just keep in mind the wild berries do best in poor soil as well as very acid soil. So does the thornless ones i’ve found.

    I hope this tip helps the home gardeners who want berries for there personal use.
