Top of my list is planting spring bulbs, November is the best month for planting Tulips, plant them deeper than you would normally, at least 5ins deep. For repeat flowering use old tried & tested varieties Apeldoorn & Golden Apeldoorn 8ins deep. I’ve had some flower every year since ’98 planting.

A close second is pruning deciduous trees & shrubs to remove dead, diseased & damaged wood, its so therapeutic. If you don’t know how, make a note to come on our winter pruning course next November or sign up for our Newsletter to be notified. ( Home page button )
