• Bring color back into your backyard and plant your annuals & tropicals.

  • Plant your container gardens but especially in warm and dry weather, water them more frequent since the roots are above ground and not in planted beds.

  • Time to start fertilizing the annuals (10 days - 2 weeks) and you should be able to transplant any annuals that you started indoors (just pay attention to temperatures at night).

  • Fertilize once more with bone meal as spring bulbs die out & just let the rest green foliage die back naturally, it supplies a lot of nutrients back to the bulb.

  • When applying fertilizer to trees & shrubs, be careful to place around the perimeter of plant, not near the base or trunk.

  • Good time to plant summer blooming bulbs and a perfect time to start your Rose maintenance routine of spraying, watering, feeding & deadheading.

  • Prune spring shrubs that have finished blooming and if your spring perennials have finished flowering, dig & divide.

  • Replenish or replace mulch around trees, shrubs & in bed areas (3” - 4” deep) and continue to edge bed & turf areas.
