Some of us have been
putting off doing the last of our planting, because other things just needed to
get done. Well, friends, time is UP! It's late November now and your November
gardening chores must get done now! Don't wait for the weekend even! Just get
out there and do the planting that you have been putting off.
Plant Your Spring Perennials Now!
If you haven't already, now is the time to plant spring-flowering perennials by
digging and dividing as quickly as possible. A great gardening tip here: plant
the younger divisions in your best location, put the older ones where they can
multiply to make more. And if they don't make it, your loss will be minimized.
If they do all make it, you have plants to give away or sell at your spring
yard sale.Another November gardening tip: divide the perennials that do the
best here in the Dallas area. What
perennials am I talking about? This would include these outstanding perennials
for Texas in general but especially for the Dallas, TX area: Coreopsis, Bearded
Iris, Bouncing Bet, Daylily, Cannas, Indian Blanket, Louisiana Iris, Sweet
Violet.Plant Your Spring Bulbs Now!
Another November Gardening tip: Plant some of your spring bulbs including
daffodils, narcissus, jonquils and grape hyacinths directly into soil as you
buy them. Remember some bulbs need to be chilled before planting: tulips and
Dutch hyacinths should be refrigerated at 45 degrees until mid-December, maybe another
week more if you are just getting them.Plant Your Cool Weather Annuals Now!
While we are at it, one last November gardening tip: plant your cool-season
annuals for color during the holidays and through the winter. Try to include
pansies, snapdragons, pinks, flowering cabbage and flowering kale for the most
Get these done now, before even putting up the Christmas lights!
In just a few weeks, you will be giving thanks you did and that gratitude will
last for months!
