November gardening tips
Rule one - keep off the lawn when it is sodden or frozen - a startling degree of damage is remarkably easily inflicted.
Rake up fallen leaves regularly - left in place they will encourage fungal disease and bare patches and make your final cut when the grass is reasonably dry with the blades set high.
Scarify and spike to improve surface drainage and aeration and apply autumn feed and moss killer if you didn’t do it last month.
New turf can be laid, weather permitting, and if you are planning to sow or lay a new lawn next spring, there is still time to prepare the ground so it is in tip top condition.
Book your mower in for servicing - leaving it until spring just places your machine firmly at the back of a long queue!
