Garden Tasks for November

Put frost protection fleece or straw around half-hardy plants. Bring frost sensitive container plants under cover if possible.
Lift dahlia tubers to store in a frost free place.
Plant bare root shrubs and trees whilst the ground still has some warmth.
Plant bulbs ready for the spring.
Add organic matter to vegetable plots.
Fit grease bands to fruit trees to stop flightless winter moth females from climbing to lay eggs.
