What should I do in my garden in November?
- Fertilise lemon trees and check that soil around trees is not drying out.
- Move tender pot plants to areas away from excessive late-afternoon sun.
- Spray Dipel, an organic product that doesn't kill beneficial insects, to control codling moth in apple trees.
- Lay snail bait around vegetable beds to stop voracious snails and slugs in their tracks.
- Feed tree ferns – both the soil and the trunk – with half-strength liquid fertiliser.
- Prune once-blooming roses as soon as flowering has finished.
- Cut back parsley to stop it running to seed.
- Check lemon trees for scale and, if present, spray with white or horticultural oil.
- Water tomatoes regularly during the drier months as irregular irrigation can cause nasty blossom-end rot.
- Lift tulip bulbs once foliage has died down and store in a cool, dry place until next season.
- Clean leaves of indoor plants by wiping with a clean cloth and tepid water.
- Snip off heads of already-flowered agapanthus to stop them becoming a weed menace.
- Lift mower blades and mow lawns more frequently to keep them looking spiffy and tidy.
