May Garden To-Do List

Marvelous Mums. Pinch back mums to promote full, bushy plants and provide more blooms this fall.
Give Your Plants a Drink. Make sure to keep all newly planted stock well watered if rain is insufficient.
Fertilize Organically. Set up an organic fertilizing plan for roses. Reapply every 4-6 weeks. Fertrell and
Espoma are two brands of organic fertilizers available.
Transplant Time. Transplant tomatoes when soil temperature reaches 50 degrees F. Plant beans and
other warm weather crops. Around mid-month, transplant young dahlia plants which have been rooted
indoors. Place them at 2-3 foot intervals. Install supports when transplanting the young plants.
Bird Watch. Place humming bird feeders out. Change liquid and clean weekly.
Weeds, weeds, weeds. Keep weeding before it gets away from you. Use mulch to deter weeds, reapply
as needed.
Shake Up Your Compost. Give the compost pile a good turning and make sure it doesn't dry out.
Practical Pruning. Prune spring shrubs like forsythia, lilac, viburnum, and crabapple when they finish
blooming.
Support Your Plants. Make sure supports or stakes are in place for tall perennials such as delphiniums
and peonies.
Get Rid of Bald Spots. Reseed bare spots in your lawn. Be sure to mulch and keep the area well watered.
Plant Your Bulbs. Warm season bulbs such as cannas, and gladiolas may be planted now.
Lovely Lilacs. When lilacs finish blooming, remove faded blooms and prune the bush if needed. Up to one
third of the branches may be removed each year. This ensures a healthy, vigorous plant.
Heavenly Herbs. Plant herbs near your kitchen door - maybe in containers. Snip a piece or two for
cooking as needed. Keep in a sunny location.
Keep Houseplants Happy. Move houseplants outside when danger of frost has passed. Keep a close
watch so they don't dry out as temperatures rise.
