November Lawn & Garden Tips

In the Garden
Plant Color that Lasts Fall, Winter & Spring.

Lenten Rose (Helleborus orientalis)
It's an evergreen perennial that blooms fall, winter or early spring and comes in an array of colors

Pansies & violas
Annual color - choose from many different colors

Camellias
The jewels of the winter garden
Try Yuletide, Apple Blossom and Setsugekka for beautiful blooms

Chopping Time

Cut back faded perennials for the winter

Start Decorating
Add fresh garland, trees, lights and wreaths

In the House


Time for Bulb Forcing

Around mid-November, plant paperwhite or amaryllis bulbs

Poinsettias for the Holidays
Poinsettias will arrive in mid-November. Choose from tons of different colors

For the Lawn

Keep It Green
For a green lawn all winter, overseed Bermuda or Zoysia lawns with annual Ryegrass now

Reseed Fescue lawn

If you haven't reseeded your fescue lawn, now is your last chance

For the Birds


Put up Suet Feeders

Suet provides birds with high energy - just what they need in the winter months

Share Your Thanksgiving Feast
Place fresh cranberries and unsalted nuts in an open feeder as a special Thanksgiving treat

Put Up the Feeders
Bird feeders bring lots of color and activity to the winter garden.  Most experts recommend black oil sunflower seed for general feeding
