A Gardener’s Work Is Never Done

Press release from: Blooming Direct
PR Agency: Maxi Media Matters

There is no such thing as a set date for a job in gardening, simply because temperatures vary according to where you are in the country, for example winter comes earlier to Scotland than Devon, but be assured a gardener’s work is never done.

November can see hard frosts, thus it is time to harvest winter cabbages and cauliflowers. Brussel sprouts will be starting, and getting ready for the traditional Christmas day lunch.

There is still time to plant garden bulbs, such as daffodils, and other spring flowering bulbs for a magnificent start to next years display, now is the time to plant tulip bulbs, it is also a good time to plant up pots and containers, of hyacinth bulbs, which can also be used as hanging basket plants ready for a stunning display next spring, not many people thing to use hyacinths in hanging baskets but anything that grows can be planted in this type of container.

November is a great time to plant roses, heathers, grasses and trailing ivy in pots for winter colour, or maybe a magnolia tree for a beautiful spring display, or lovely lavender plants for their beauty and usefulness.

Vegetables are being grown more and more by gardeners all over the UK, there is nothing quite like going into your garden and picking fresh vegetables for the table, and more importantly the taste is something else.

Perennial plants can be either flowers or vegetable plants, and there is no better time to start planting a perennial vegetable bed which can now be planted up with rhubarb crowns and asparagus crowns.

So what does November hold for the gardener, a very busy time, for example, it is great for planting autumn garlic, or maybe you would like to have a go in growing your own mushrooms, of course you can invest in a mushroom kit it is very easy, and puts a feather in your cap when you have success.

Growing fruit in a garden is perfect when harvesting to bake lovely pies and tarts, it is now the ideal time to plant currant bushes, raspberry canes, and it is also time to tidy up your strawberry plants, and prune pear and apple trees, this can be done anytime between now and February, the only fruit not to prune now is your plum trees, as they can be susceptible to the silver leaf fungus, you should wait until midsummer.

Plants for your garden can be handled from your armchair, get online and order what you will need for your flower, vegetable and fruit plants for next year, now is a good time to get your fingers moving across your keyboard and select your favourites, or trusted species that never let you down year after year.
