The Vegetable Garden in November


Like last month, this month is about harvesting and tidying up and progessing winter digging before winter sets in.

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
