Trees and Plants:
      Wrap large, newly planted palms that are borderline hardy for the first 2 years. Ex. California and especially Mexican fan palms.
      This is one of the best time of the year for planting trees. Buy trees and plant now.

 Flowers:
      Winter color can be planted, like pansies, cabbage, kale and stock.
      Spring and summer flowering bulbs and perennials can be divided.
      Buy your spring flowering bulbs now so you can chill and plant after November.

 Garden:
     Sow Elbon rye to rid any nematodes and to add nutrient to the soil.
     Use organic fertilizers like Fox Farm on a monthly basis.

 Extras:
     This is a good time to begin a compost pile, or add to an existing one that is started.
