Margaret's Garden Journal for November 2002

The November viewpoint

November has been frost free in the garden so the grass has kept green, In the front garden two dahlias survived the October frosts and have struggled on with rain bedraggled flowers. The leeks have done well and the I have enjoyed cauliflowers, Romanesco and brussels although none of the brassicas except the brussels enjoy the thinner soil of the bed this years rotation has placed them in.

Rose buds survive but the rain rots them before tbey open

The holly has dressed too early for Christmas.
