Here are a few things to do in November in the Treasure Valley to get ready for a great growing season starting next spring.
Spread the last half of your lawn's annual fertilizer allotment in two sessions, a week or two apart.
Use a power mower to vacuum and shred leaves for use as winter mulch or as additions to compost.
Plant spring flowering bulbs after the 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.
