Garden Tips for November

  • Prune and clean up for fire prevention.
  • Oil and sharpen tools.  Sand handles.  Either varnish or spray paint handles to make them easy to find in the garden.
  • Pull summer annuals and vegetables.
  • Prune dead and broken branches on trees and shrubs.
  • Rake and compost leaves and plant materials.  Dispose of diseased materials.
  • Water plants that rains cannot reach.
  • Remove the bands of corrugated cardboard used to trap codling moth larvae from around apple tree trunks and dispose of them.
  • Apply mulch.
  • Remove “mummies” from fruit trees after.
  • Check dates of Master Gardener classes.
