November Maintenance Tips
November is a great time to fertilize deciduous trees and shrubs and cool season grasses to prepare for the upcoming growing season in the spring. An ideal fertilizer to use for this is N-P-K 24-4-12.
The fall and winter months are peak pruning season for deciduous trees and shrubs. While these plants are in dormancy for the winter, it is important to remove all dead/diseased limbs during this time to promote new and healthy growth come early spring.
Pests and Diseases
The number one most harmful pest to your garden in November is fruit flies. They feed off of fresh produce and leafy greens and they come in huge numbers! The most effective organic treatment for a fruit fly infestation is ½ a cup of apple cider vinegar and 3 drops of dish soap in a glass jar. This combination will attract the fruit flies into the jar, and will paralyze them before they are able to fly back out of the jar.
Additional November Tip
November is the most ideal time to clean up any leftover limbs/foliage from your warm-season crops and take precautions to protect any cool-season crops from below-freezing temperatures.
