November Lawn & Garden Tips
November Lawn & Garden Tips
- November is a great time to plant container grown shade trees, shrubs, and ground covers.
- Pansies, Ornamental Cabbage and Kale may still be planted. Fertilize at time of planting with Hi-Yield Blood Meal, which also repels rabbits.
- Plant spring flowering bulbs such as tulips, daffodils, etc., Use Hi-Yield Bone Meal.
- In early November fertilize established cool-season shady lawn grass with TLC Premium Lawn Food.
- Remove fallen leaves from covering cool-season grasses
- Fertilize established trees and shrubs with TLC Tree, Shrub, and Landscape Food.
- Control existing broadleaf lawn weeds with Gordon’s Speed Zone.
- Apply 2” layer of Composted Manure under pines and magnolias
- Mulch beds to insulate for winter with Premium Cedar, Premium Cypress,or Pecan Hulls.
- Prune trees and shrubs as needed
- Dig up and store Elephant Ears, Cannas, Gladiolas, Dahlias, and Caladiums.
- Move houseplants inside when night temperatures are below 50 degrees. Treat with Bonide Systemic Houseplant Insect Control.
- Compost annual debris and leaves but do not compost diseased or insect infested plant parts
- Drain gasoline from power equipment. Drain and store water hoses.
- Select your Christmas tree from TLC Garden Centers in late November while selection is the best. Trees from 4 to 15 feet tall are available, including Noble Fir, Fraser Fir, and Douglas Fir. We also flock Christmas trees white for a beautiful snowy appearance. We have delivery service available for Edmond and North OKC.
- Pines, spruce, cedars, and junipers are most suitable for uses as a living Christmas tree. TLC Garden Centers stock these in several varieties and sizes. The main consideration in a living Christmas tree is it should only be kept in the house for 5-7 days and not exceed 10 days.
- Visit TLC Garden Centers in late November to select from our 30,000 Poinsettias. We also stock Christmas wreaths, roping, greenery, etc.
- If rainfall has been deficient, water trees, shrubs, and lawns to prevent winter damage.
