Now that November is coming the rain is increasing, it becomes windier and leaves are falling rapidly. Delicate plants (like bananas) will require protecting from the freezing rains, frost and gales.
It's advisible to move plants into the greenhouse, or into a well sheltered spot, but if it's not possible, it's worth wrapping plants or pots in situ (on site). Winter can also be a tough time for wild life, especially birds in terms of water and food, so keep your bird supplies topped up.
These are Novembers top jobs to carry out:
Clear up fallen leaves - especially from lawns, ponds and beds
Raise containers onto pot feet to prevent waterlogging
Plant tulip bulbs for a spring display next year
Prune roses to prevent wind-rock
Plant out winter bedding
Cover brassicas with netting if pigeons are a problem
Insulate outdoor containers from frost - bubblewrap works well
Stop winter moth damage to fruit trees using grease bands around the trunks
Put out bird food to encourage winter birds into the garden
Use a seasonal bonfire - where this is allowed - to dispose of excess debris unfit for composting
