May Garden Tips

  • Spring dry spells can be deceptive. Don’t neglect watering all plants, especially newly planted trees, shrubs and perennials. 
  • Fertilize Rhododendrons after they have bloomed with granular Rhodo and Azalea Food to promote good health and next years flowers.
  • Plant vegetables like tomatoes, cucumber, beans, squash, pumpkins, and corn.
  • It’s not too late to plant Dahlia tubers and Gladiolus for late summer blooms.
  • The May long weekend is the traditional time to get your annuals planted in pots, hanging baskets and garden beds.
  • Don’t forget Mother’s Day.  Treat your mom to a beautiful hanging basket.
  • Water Lilies, pond plants and floaters arrive in the store by mid-May.  Re-stock your pond or start a patio water garden.
