  November 2017

Head into your local Go Gardening Store. There you'll find the plants and products featured in this newsletter and Go Gardening magazine.


Timely reminder
November is planting time for warm weather crops: zucchini, cucumber, pumpkins, eggplants, melons, beans and tomatoes. 

Take time to smell the roses
November is peak rose flowering time – a good chance to make planting decisions. Prune old-fashioned ramblers immediately after flowering.

Ship shape
Trim topiary little and often over spring and summer. Regular clipping of young growth maintains sharp silhouettes with tight even growth.



Salad time
Plant a pack of seedlings or sow seed every couple of weeks for a continuous supply of fresh salad greens all summer long.

Bug watch
Aphids thrive and multiply on new shoots and flowers. Check plants regularly and get them under control before population explosion gets away on you.

Water wisely
Enjoy a thriving garden while conserving precious water. It’s time to plan and prepare for the dry months ahead.

Maximise growth naturally with the all-in-one Garden Mix Plus that replaces mulch, manure, compost & fertiliser!
