Propagating Tasks in November


Subject to the weather and the heating facilities you have, propagating tasks are more or less over for the current season.

Basically all that can be done now is look after any seedlings and cuttings you have propagated to date, and ensure that they are not subjected to sub zero temperatures.

Similarly, do not let them completely dry out, but equally, ensure that they do not become water-logged.

Note: As with most advice on gardening the advisors location will often influence the content of the advice.

To alleviate this problem I have produced this chart indicating how you can make adjustments to the timing of events as seen in this website.

I hope you find this useful! .......Tg
