Garden tasks for November

• Sow quick-growing annuals like alyssum, dwarf marigolds, nasturtiums, portulaca and California poppy.

• Lift and divide irises, water agapanthus if the weather is hot and dry and fertilise roses, cannas, dahlias and hydrangeas.

• For heat-resistant bedding colour, plant vinca, Angelonia and bedding salvia in sunny beds and begonias in semi-shade.

• Water outdoor container plants and hanging baskets once a day and feed twice a month. When the sun becomes too harsh, move the containers into a position where they can receive afternoon shade.

• November is peak time for pests. Watch out for lily borer (black and yellow stripes) on your clivia and amaryllis and spray with Margaret Roberts Biological Caterpillar Insecticide. Protect roses, tomatoes, and sweet peppers with Ludwig’s Insect Spray, which is organic.

• Succession sowing of most summer vegetables can be continued up until the end of this month.
