What To Do in the Garden
Transplant tomato, eggplant, and pepper seedlings when the soil is above 60° Fahrenheit. It may take until the end of the month for the soil to reach this temperature.
Sow okra, corn, green beans, and squash seeds directly into your garden.
This is a great time to buy and plant late spring flowering bulbs or early summer bulbs.
It’s time to thin out your orchard. Make sure there are approximately six inches of space between each piece of fruit on your trees.
Buy our Week’s Roses, it's time to plant!
We have potted citrus trees, ready to plant!
Stop by for your summer vegetable seeds. Draw up a garden plan to help decide the quantities of each type you need.
Check your patio plants aren't drying out. The warmer weather will quickly affect soil moisture levels.
Order shade trees now or visit us for selections.
Cut back spent plants to about 6 inches and add non-diseased organic matter to your compost pile.
Finish cutting back any dead foliage on perennials and ornamental grass plants.
Sow seeds of poppies, hollyhock and bachelor’s buttons.
Add compost to your gardens to enrich the soil.
Be sure to still keep new plants covered at night.
Perennials - Did you know pansies can handle the cool weather? They’re great at it, and this is good news for anyone who would like a burst of color in the early summer days before the heat wipes them out. Romantic hydrangeas, climbing clematis and more perennial beauties infuse your garden with color, texture and fragrance for years to come. Grasses also make attractive accents to grow in problem landscape spots. Don't forget about those hard-working ground covers! Many have small flowers.
Year-round plants for landscaping can also include plants that have berries, such as viburnum, barberry or holly. They may also be plants with interesting seed heads throughout winter, like Echinacea and Sedum Autumn Joy.
Some of the best performers in Zone 7 and 8 like ours are arugulas, beets, swiss chard, mustard, cauliflower, radishes, carrots, cabbage, peas, and turnips.
Spread manure, rotted sawdust, rotted straw, and shredded leaves over the garden and plow them under; you'll be surprised at the difference this organic matter will make in the fertility, physical structure and water-holding capacity of the soil.
No matter what you’re planting, I hope your garden is a source of pleasure as well as sustenance! Have fun in the garden, teach your kids to garden and enjoy the harvest!
