November is often one of the wettest months of the year, and also brings fog and frosts.
Despite the gloom there’s still some colour to be found among leaves and berries. Winter-flowering shrubs such as Mahonia media hybrids, winter Honeysuckle and Viburnum Bodnantense will bring gorgeous fragrance to the short days.
Try and spend a little time tidying up your borders – you’ll be pleased you did when spring comes round. This is a good time of year to plant conifers with the help of your favourite J Arthur Bower’s planting mixture.
