Sunday, May 8 is Mother’s Day and Mom loves flowers!
David Austin Rose - Boscobel
|It’s lovely weather and we’re itching to get outside and play in the garden. Mother’s Day is when it’s safe to hang your ferns and plant your tomatoes, your summer garden, and your annual flowers (but keep your eye on the weather just in case).|
- Prune flowering shrubs after they have bloomed.
- Plant your summer-blooming bulbs like dahlias and gladiolas.
- Its ok to move houseplants outdoors as long as nighttime temps are above 50 degrees. Gently transition your plants and be sure to protect most houseplants from exposure to direct sunlight so their leaves don’t burn.
- Plant tomatoes, peppers, squash, cucumbers, and other summer garden plants.
- Install your tomato cages at planting time. Cages work beautifully to support peppers too.
- Plant sweet potatoes when the ground is very warm…or cover your spot with black plastic to warm up the soil in preparation to plant.
- Start checking for ripe strawberries!
- Okra performs well when direct-seeded into the garden once the soil is nice and warm. Old timers suggest soaking the seed in milk overnight prior to planting.
- Plant zinnia and sunflower seeds around mid-May. They come up quickly from seed once the soil warms.
- Fertilize blueberries now with an acid-living fertilizer like Holly-Tone, and again in another month.
- Mulch your garden – whether vegetable or ornamental – to prevent weeds and retain moisture.
- Bt (Bacillus thuringiensis) is an organic solution to worms on cabbage, broccoli, and greens.
- Consider repurposing some of your lawn into pollinator garden plants.
In all things of nature there is something marvelous… -Aristotle
