Master Gardener Tips for November
 
*. Rake often to keep leaves and pine needles off grass. Use this yard waste to 
    mulch.
 
* Dig caladium and dahlias, store in a cool, dry area.
 
* Collect seeds from summer flowers and keep them in air-tight containers, like 
  old medicine bottles.
 
* You can now sow the seeds you collected from your spring flowers.
 
* Don’t forget to water at 1 inch a week, if it doesn’t rain.
 
* You can fertilize cool season grasses.
 
* Vegetable seeds can be planted now, such as onions and asparagus crowns.
 
* Spray fruit trees with a lime-sulfur spray to control leaf curl next spring.
 
* Crops such as carrots, turnips, radishes and beets may be left in the ground if heavily mulched and harvested on a continuing basis as needed.
 
* Fertilize camellias now..
 
* Check your shrubs for scale. Use dormant oil if needed. The shrubs to check are:  camellias, hollies, euonymus, azaleas and sasanquas. Spray when the temperature is  between 45 F and 85 F.
 
* Sow seeds of larkspur, poppies, forget-me-nots, bachelor buttons, sweet peas 
  and nasturtiums in prepared, sunny beds.
 
* Fertilize newly-planted pansy beds with 5-10-10 or a slow release
  fertilizer.
