November Planting Tips
- Do not feed roses. Water three times a week until Thanksgiving. Gradually cut back irrigation after that point.
- A wide variety of cool weather annuals will be available for winter color, including alyssum, bachelor buttons, calendula, Christmas cactus, cyclamen, freesias, geraniums, hollyhocks, lobelia, pansies, snapdragon, stock, and violas.
- Plant cool weather vegetable starts such as beets, broccoli, cabbage, carrots, cauliflower, fava beans, horseradish, lettuce, mustard, peas, rhubarb, spinach, Swiss chard and turnips. Most cool weather vegetables can still be planted from seed.
- Set out seedlings of celery, cabbage, broccoli, and Brussels sprouts.
- Plant hardy herbs like cilantro.
- Plant trees and shrubs not sensitive to frost.
- Established trees and shrubs will need irrigation about once every three to four weeks.
- Avoid heavy pruning of deciduous trees and shrubs. Some selective pruning is o.k.
- The first frost usually occurs this month. Be prepared to cover your frost sensitive plants with Easy Gardener frost cloth, which can be left on your plants for two or three days without causing damage.
- Indoor plants purchased within the last six months may need to be re-repositioned as sun exposure changes with the season.
