  • Although in November we often have a brief encore – late summer, it is wise to start preparing your garden for winter. Weather permitting, there is always something to do or see for the true gardener. The garden can still look quite eye-catching with the last of the late-summer flowers in bloom.

  • In November there is still so much to enjoy in the garden! We see evergreen leaves, trees and shrubs with their beautiful coloured berries, trees with a special bark – what excitement in the November garden!

  • In this month when it is damp outside you can still enjoy flower bulbs and plants indoors. So by the end of November the first flower bulbs (that were forced in October) can be moved into the lounge.

  • Your kitchen garden in November can still look beautiful with lovely winter colours! You can still harvest and enjoy the last of your homegrown produce.

    First of all, we would like to clear up a widespread misunderstanding: Bulbs are not Tubers!
    A bulb is in fact a complete plant, lying all curled up, waiting to unfold. If you cut a bulb in half, an onion for instance, you can see inside the bulb a miniature form of the plant that will grow - and these are the future stalks, leaves and flowers. A Tuber is not a complete plant but an accumulation of nutrients with buds on the outside, like the potato.
