MAY TO DO LIST 

 

     •  Plant dahlias and cannas after last frost.

     •  Plant chrysanthemums for fall color.

     •  Fertilize roses; watch for powdery mildew and black spot.

     •  Avoid using "weed and feed" materials on the lawn; spot spray for weeds instead.

     •  Continue to plant fall root or leaf crops every two weeks for a continuous harvest.

 

 

WATER TIPS 

 

Apply 1-2 inches of organic mulch between flowers to retain moisture and control weeds; add organic matter.

If you do not have an automatic sprinkler system, water your trees with a bubbler at the end of a hose at a low rate, at several locations beyond the drip line. Delay pruning at lest two weeks before the last spring frost.
