GARDENING

Check outdoor fittings Give your outdoor lighting the once-over. Check your fittings, replace dead bulbs, and make sure foliage has not obscured the flow of light. Plant flowers You can plant roses, daphne, lily of the valley, forget-me-nots, calendula, polyanthus, poppies, violas, pansies, snapdragons, and deciduous flowering shrubs. Get mulching Mulching will not just make your garden look better, it will keep your plants warm this winter, and suppress weeds come spring. Feed your lemons When your lemons are done fruiting, feed them. They’re gross feeders and will enjoy the treat after all their hard work.
