In November the poppies blow

November is the time to plant tulips out in your borders.

You can still sow broad beans in most areas up until mid-November. Sow hardy varieties such as Aquadulce Claudia or Super Aquadulce

Garlic cloves started under cover in a cold frame or greenhouse are then ready to plant out in spring. Round seeded peas and broad beans can also be sown under cover too for early pickings in the spring. 

If you have room on your windowsill plant up bowls of sweet smelling narcissi such as ' cheerfulness'  or hyacinths. Flamboyant Hippeastrum (more commonly known as amaryllis) planted up now may be in full bloom for Christmas
