Posted by & filed under Allentuck Landscaping Co., DIY Monthly To-Do List

May is the busiest of the garden months. There is a lot to get done so let's get right too it.

  • It is now safe to plant annual. There are so man to choose from so be creative. Cosmos, begonias, petunias, marigolds....just too many to name.May Garden To Do List
  • Prune Azaleas, Rhododendrons and Lilacs as the flowers fade. This will direct more energy to new growth and next year's buds.
  • Make sure roses are clean of last year's debris which can harvest diseases such as black spot.
  • Begin looking for pests such as slugs, aphids, tent caterpillars and lacebugs.
  • Plant your vegetable gardens! Whether by seed or starter plants, now is the time.
  • Bring houseplants that have been overwintered back outside. Watch out for the occasional cold night.
  • Have your irrigation system checked for proper coverage now before you need it this summer.
  • Put water in your birdbath.
  • It is staying light later. Adjust your outdoor lighting system timer.
  • Mother's Day is this weekend. Buy mom some flowers, or better yet, make her a flower garden!
