I'm a gardening pro and here's everything you need to plant in November for a pristine space next year | The Sun

NOVEMBER might not feel like the prime time to garden, but there are some jobs that still need to be done.

So if you want your outdoor space to look lush year round, here's exactly what to check off your list right now.

According to the pros at Gardeners World there's plenty to be getting on with this month, from planting new blooms to harvesting crops.

They explained: "Plenty of flower and vegetable seeds can be sown or planted in the UK in November.

"Sowing in November gives you a head start on the gardening year ahead, bringing flower and vegetable harvest times forwards, while taking up soil space that would otherwise remain empty."

You can plant them in pots and keep them in a greenhouse or near a window inside.

Apples and pears

"Bare-root apples and pears can be planted now, along with container-grown trees," the gardening experts explained.

They added that picking the right rootstock for your tree is vital, since this will help they grow strong.

Flowers to plant

Sweet peas

Although they can also be sown in spring, planting sweet peas now will result in earlier flowering, which will brighten up your garden.


You can plant Bugle in the sun or in partial shade in November and will have stunning blooms by spring.
