16 - 22 November 2015

It's time to...

  • Clear out old tomato and cucumber cordons and add to the compost heap
  • Move potted bulbs into the greenhouse to develop before bringing into the house
  • Water sparingly, aiming to keep the atmosphere as dry as possible over winter
  • Bring potted herbs under cover to continue cropping over winter
  • Ventilate the greenhouse on warm days
  • Line the glass with bubble polythene for insulation
  • Propagate perennials from root cuttings including phlox, rhus and mint
  • Plant bulbs in large pots of compost ready to fill any gaps in spring borders
