Gardening by Month
Officially the last month of spring, November often has many rainy days and as such, the garden is not frequented as much as in dry weather. The rain spoils many flowering plants and causes fungal diseases and rot in many plants. Good drainage becomes important at this time. It tends to be a bit of an in between season for gardeners. However, use November to get the garden ready for the imminent holiday season.
On the second Tuesday of every month, Gerald Schofield hosts informative, interesting garden talks covering a wide variety of subjects. November’s Garden Talk will cover simple solutions for problem areas in the garden. Join us at Blackwood’s Home of Gardening on Tuesday, 8th of November at 9:00am for 9:30am. There’s always question and answer time at the end, as well as a chance to win one of several lucky draw prizes! Entrance fee is R20-00, which is donated to Msunduzi Hospice.
