Flowering In: November

November initiates a period of transition in the garden as colder temperatures set in. Gardeners focus on protective measures to safeguard their plants from frost, utilizing covers and mulch for insulation. It's an opportune time for the final clean-up of the garden, clearing away debris, and pruning dormant trees and shrubs. While the outdoor floral display diminishes, some late-blooming perennials, such as autumn sedums and certain varieties of asters, continue to add touches of color to the landscape. November is also an ideal month for planning and designing, as gardeners reflect on the past season and envision improvements for the upcoming year. Embracing these activities in November ensures a well-prepared garden, ready to endure the winter months and poised for a vibrant resurgence in the spring.
