November Gardening Tips


1389Water Well

Remember to continue to water, especially new plantings before the ground freezes, up until Thanksgiving. This important measure helps ensure that your plants have the moisture that they need going into dormancy.

Go Low

To avoid mice and vole damage over the winter, cut your perennials back as low as possible to the ground. Do not leave any dense foliage as it will encourage nesting and eating.

Record Favorites
This time of year, while cleaning up in the beds, it is great to make a note of the best annuals to grow for next year. Think of those easy, awesome performers that really wowed throughout the season. Our top show stoppers were cardoons (Check out these giants that grew from 4″ to 4′!), Tithonia (Mexican sunflower) and Dahlias!
