WHAT TO PLANT
Annuals/Bedding Plants: Create a display of fall colors with cool-season plants. Some examples include impatiens, strawflower, cape daisy, and pansy.
Bulbs: Many bulbs like to get their start in cool weather. Bulbs to plant this month include amaryllis, crinum, and the many varieties of elephant’s ear.
Herbs: Continue planting herbs from seeds or plants. A wide variety of herbs like cooler, dryer weather, including cilantro, dill, fennel, parsley, sage, and thyme.
Vegetables: Lots of choices exist for November including beans, broccoli, kale, snow/English peas, and strawberries.

WHAT TO DO
Perennials: Divide and replant overgrown perennials and bulbs now so that they establish before the coolest weather arrives.
Lawns: Watch for brown patch and large patch until May. These fungal diseases cause areas of grass to turn brown. Since treatment is difficult, prevention with proper cultural practices is key.
Scale insects: Take advantage of lower temperatures to apply horticultural oil sprays to control scale insects.
Irrigation: Turn off systems and water only if needed. Plants need less supplemental watering in cooler weather.
Poinsettias:
Watch for hornworms on poinsettias planted in the landscape. This pest can quickly defoliate a plant. Handpick or treat only the infested area.
