What to Plant in November (The Best Veg & Flowers to Grow)

There is plenty more going on in the garden this November, with lots of flowers, vegetables and fruits to seed and plant now for spring crops or for harvesting throughout winter. There is also a bit more gardening going on in the month, should you be feeling uplifted by more tasks around your yard. In fact, there are several things that can still be planted this time of year that you will be reaping the rewards for come spring.

While you are planting spring bulbs in the garden, you may also want to get a few to bloom sooner than they would normally begin from this month. Planting bulbs in the fall allows them to spend the winter, and then they will flower early spring.

Once planted in the fall, they are most likely to regrow leaves the first year and bloom the next since they are considered to be biennial plants. You can plant roses from this month until March when they are in their dormant stage.

If you are wondering what to plant in November, consider roses, since they are one of many shrubs that can be purchased as bare roots. If you want to add a few roses to your yard, buying the plants as bare roots is an inexpensive way to go about doing so.

Like roses, fall and early winter are a great time to plant bare root trees, because that is when they are dormant. November is also a great time to plant bare-root fruit trees, which are dormant when planted, but then get the whole growing season once temperatures warm up in the spring.

If you plant during the month of November, you will allow roots to develop before the first frost of winter. When it is time to plant cabbage, make sure you plant your seeds three months prior to your first freeze. At this time of the year, you may plant the fully-grown kale, but it is too late to plant seeds. You can plant your sweet pea seeds in November to get hardy plants, but be sure to put them somewhere that does not get cold.

If planting seeds, be patient and remember to water, because the seeds may take up to a month to sprout. You can begin planting seeds indoors, and then move them outside just weeks before the last spring freeze.

Do not forget, you can start planting indoors during the winter as well, then transfer them outside once spring arrives. If you are planting your thyme in your garden outside, be sure that it gets lots of sunlight; you can also plant it inside and leave it on a sunny windowsill.

If you get a greenhouse, you may want to plant a few perennial seed plants this month so you have a jump-start for your gardening next year. Onion seeds planted in November will winter and will be ready for you to plant come the spring, and they will be mature sooner than bulbs that you might plant in your vegetable garden early spring.

There is not a lot of time left to plant the bulbs, as in just a couple of weeks, the soil will have grown far too tough. By planting your garlic in November, you give your garlic cloves time to set roots, set up over the winter, and begin growing vigorously once the snows have cleared in spring.

If garlic is your thing, this is the time to take action: By planting single cloves in the fall, you will be ready to harvest in time for the coming summer. Plant regular garlic pointing UP, and they will appear early spring. Plant blackcurrants and gooseberries once they arrive, they will begin growing as temperatures warm again in the spring.

Plant gooseberry plants with the gooseberry root stock, the Syrena, now, as well as plants with the white, and blackcurrants, to provide you with varied sweet fruit crops for the coming season.

Plant narcissus and hyacinths that were produced for growing indoors now, they will come in six to twelve weeks, keep planting about once per week, and you will have displays all winter and into the spring. Decorate the Garden Box with plants that flower in fall and winter such as pansies, violets, and bergenia.

If you are looking to add height and color to your yard, add Verbascum seeds to the "What To Plant In November" list. It is a great time to plant cool-season vegetables such as:

  • Brussel sprouts
  • Rhubarb
  • Cilantro
  • Other flavoral greens;

Whether you are growing them in the ground or planting in raised beds. Spend some time this month planting spring blooming bulbs*, and you will make a huge difference to how much interest there is in your yard come late winter.

While most fall and winter crops need to be planted by September and October, because Central Texas has mild winters, there are still plenty of plants that can be started during this month. You should plant fully grown snapdragons at this time of the year only--seeds can be planted during spring.

The best time to plant arugula seeds and other leafy greens seeds is in November, if you live in the United States. Some of these fall garden plants need to be grown indoors, but others can be planted outside in soil to guarantee a early spring harvest once the snow starts to melt.

Next spring, once the freeze has passed, you can get the young plants used to outdoor temperatures and transplant them into the borders of your vegetable garden, wherever you would like to see them bloom. - Garden Lot
