Here are a few things to do in November to get ready for a great growing season starting next spring.
Spread last half of lawns annual fertilizer allotment in two sessions, a week or two apart.
Use power mower to vacuum and shred leaves for use as winter mulch or as additions to compost.
Plant spring flowering bulbs after soil temperature drops below 60 degrees. (Buy your bulbs earlier in the season if you want a better selection. Keep in a cool, dry place or refrigerate.) For winter cheer, buy bulbs for forcing indoors.
