What to Plant in November and December

Plant strawberries in November. Varieties include Florida 90, Tioga, Sequoia, Florida Belle, Dover, Tufts, Sweet Charlie and Chandler. Plant in rows 36” apart and 12” apart within the row. Elevate rows 6” above existing soil to insure good drainage. Use pine straw to reduce weed problems and slugs. Temperatures are finally cooling down. Tis the season for beets*, broccoli*, Brussels sprouts, cabbage*, carrots*, Chinese cabbage*, collards, kale*, kohlrabi*, leek*, mustard*, onions*, parsley*, radish*, and spinach. Add to the list for December those with an * listed above.

There are many annuals for cool weather. For both November and December, plant carnation (China doll), delphinium, dianthus, foxglove (digitalis), larkspur, ornamental cabbage, ornamental kale, pansy, petunia, Shasta daisy, snapdragon and violas. Remove old flowers on snaps, petunias, and pansies to encourage new blooms. Bulb-type plants include African lily (Agapanthus), amaryllis, anemone, Aztec lily, calla, crinum, daylily, elephant ears, freesia, hurricane lily, hyacinth, Iris spp., Ixia, kaffir lily, Lily spp, Moraea (African lily), narcissus, pineapple lily, shell ginger, snowflake (Nov. only), society garlic, spider lily, Star-of-Bethlehem, Ornithogalum spp., walking iris, ranunculus (buttercup), spider lily, tritonia, tulip (Dec. only), voodoo lily (Dec. only), watsonia, and zephyr lily. Chill tulips and hyacinths by placing them in the refrigerator for 2 months. Keep them away from ripening fruit/vegetables because the ethylene produced can cause flowers to abort. Once chilling is complete, plant them in the landscape or in a container.
