November: Time to put the garden to bed


With the Festive period ever closer, don’t forget to put your garden to bed before the Christmas planning takes hold.

  • Mulch borders, beds and containers to prevent soil freezing. Using an organic mulch such as compost will also break down to feed the soil over winter
  • Wrap up plants such as fern trucks, with horticultural fleece to protect them from the winter elements
  • Clean and repair tools as necessary, so you are all ready for Spring!

And an appropriate quote to end with:

“The unmulched garden looks to me like some naked thing which for one reason or another would be better off with a few clothes on.”

Ruth Stout, The Ruth Stout No-Work Garden Book, 1971
