Flower Power Garden Hour

Nov 2, 2022

It is the November To Do List, and we are in the throes of winter garden prep.  Weather is starting to cool rapidly, and (hopefully) out west we start seeing moisture soon.

It is time to plant:

  • Fava beans
  • Bok choy
  • Celery
  • Swiss chard
  • Garlic
  • Kale
  • Kohlrabi
  • Lettuce
  • Mustard
  • Onions
  • Peas
  • Radish
  • Shallots
  • Spinach
  • Perennials (except frost sensitive)
  • Spring blooming bulbs
  • Cover crops: Fava beans, Crimson clover
  • Spring blooming annual seeds: Natives, sweet peas


Chores include:

  • Clean up summer garden
  • Dig up/divide perennials such as: Cannas, agapanthus, grasses
  • Avoid transplanting succulents
  • Order seeds for next year
  • Weed control


We finish up with a Listener Q&A section.  Topics covered include:

  • Is it too late to plant sweet pea seeds?
  • Iris bulbs – okay to plant now, or store for next year?
  • How to divide and plant Elephant Ear, Bird of Paradise, and Banana Tree?
  • Brussel sprouts and Romanesco being predated – what is doing it, and how to prevent?
  • Dieffenbachia – how to transplant?
  • Purple Pony Plum infested with caterpillars – how to get rid of?
