Halloween’s ending marks the true beginning of the Holiday Season at Caroline’s Garden. Master Gardener Carrie Petty is busy cleaning up the garden beds now so that there is ample time to enjoy the parties, cooking and good cheer of the Thanksgiving and Christmas season. Carrie says:
You don’t want to be busy in the garden now, when entertaining seasons is now in full gear!”
Garden Work in November
Is all about cleaning up debris, so not to cause disease in the spring. Weeding and edging for a clean winter presentation is critical. Give the yard a final low setting mow and mulch the tops of tender perennials for protection. Pull out all annual planting, clean and disinfect pots. Keep seed-heads from flowers for the birds to enjoy. Enjoy and take notes for the coming garden season!
