Here’s a checklist of things to do in the landscape in November:
A late fall fertilization program is recommended by county extension agents throughout the country.
With a late fall application of a high-quality fertilizer, the lawn will establish a strong, deep root system, store nutrients that will carry it through winter, and green up earlier next spring.
The slow-release nitrogen in Greenview Fairway Formula Fall Fertilizer is specially formulated for cooler temperatures and wetter weather. The formula also contains a higher percentage of slow-release fertilizer than its competitors.
Greenview Fairway Formula Fall Fertilizer, which is phosphate free, continues feeding the lawn until the ground freezes. When the ground thaws in spring, the slow-release nitrogen kicks in again, ensuring a faster green up and healthy lawn. Always read and follow the label directions.

Houseplant growth will slow so apply less fertilizer and water.
Move plants closer to windows or to sunnier exposures if plants are dropping leaves.
Pot up spring-flowering bulbs with tips exposed to force blooms indoors. Moisten soil and refrigerate 10 to 13 weeks. Transfer to a cool sunny location and allow an additional three to four weeks for blooming.
Large leaves allowed to accumulate will smother the lawn and kill the grass. Run over leaves with a mulching lawn mower to chop them into small pieces. Chopped leaves decompose quickly and return nutrients to the lawn.
