Gardening work that occurs in November and December? Anyone who thinks that gardeners can relax in November and December is wrong.
Garden in November
Especially in November there is still a lot to do before winter sets in. We explain below which routine work, maintenance and winter protection measures are still pending.
November is the best time to plant berry and fruit trees. As long as the weather allows it and it remains frost-free, you can also plant other trees. Sensitive plants and perennials such as lavender should now be covered with leaves or brushwood or with jute and fleece at the latest.
Be careful when pruning, especially with ornamental grasses. It makes more sense to tie the dry grass together to protect the roots from the cold and wet. Ornamental shrubs and conifers should also be lightly tied together as far as possible. This way, larger masses of snow cannot harm the plants.
