Tips of the Week
Fertilize your spring-flowering plants, perennials, and vegetables.
Mulch, but don't clump it up against the trunks of your plants.
Don't forget to give deep watering to new plants and fruit trees.
Collect seeds from spring annuals. Cut them off, dump into a bag or bucket. Next week, sift the seeds and dry in the house. Then, bag them up for cool storage until next fall.
Move spring bulbs while you can see them.
Plant beets, okra, cantaloupe, summer squash, tomatillos, cucumber, Swiss chard, peppers, sweet potato slips.
Plant summer annuals like caladiums, impatiens, marigolds, cosmos, celosia, begonias, coleus, zinnias, and globe amaranth.
Plant basil, lemon verbena, rosemary, oregano, and thyme.
