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.
