November to December

 

Now the leaves have fallen and we have the endless task of sweeping them up and adding them to our piles of compost.   November is the start of tulip planting, so we start working on those borders where we will be planting tulips -  cutting back, weeding, reducing groups of plants, which have become too large, introducing new plants and making any changes that we have made notes about during the summer months - and, finally, planting tulips where we have marked spaces for them with bamboo canes.
