And, of course, we featured the rootsandshoots GARDENING TIPS for this month...

  • It’s the time of year to gather up the remaining harvest and tidy up the garden in readiness to get started on next year's crops and flowers.
  • If you have a greenhouse, check that heaters are working properly.
  • Your potatoes should have been stored in a cool, dark place in hessian sacks or something similar. It’s a good idea to check through each one carefully as any diseased potatoes can affect the others. Remove any that feel spongy, have fungus on them or are discoloured.
  • Herb gardens should be tidied up. Take out annual herbs. Perennial herbs can be cut back hard to encourage new growth in spring.
  • Winter lettuces can be grown under cloches or in a cold frame.
  • Your rhubarb will need attention. Remove dead or drying foliage from the crowns to stop rot setting in. If you have large clumps of rhubarb you can divide them into chunks as long as there is a bud on each piece. Give your rhubarb plants a good mulch of well-rotted manure for protection over winter and to feed them in the spring.
  • Replace borders filled with dying bulbs by winter flowering pansies, small flowered violas, wallflowers or spring flowering bulbs.

Happy gardening from rootsandshoots
