Experts from Earl May said that just because it is November does not mean you can't still be planting.  The gardening experts recommend that if you want to plant a tree, do it now.  Autumn is the ideal time to plant a tree or perennial plant as it lets the plants establish roots for the spring but be sure to plant these new additions before the ground freezes for the winter.

November is also the perfect time to permanently eradicate those pesky weeds from your yard.   The cooler temperatures before the freeze is the best time to kill stronger weeds like Creeping Charlie.  Be sure to use a weed killer on these as they are very resilient.
