May Gardening Tips
June 05, 2010

There are so many things to talk about in the month of May related to gardening. Finally without worry of frost, your annuals and vegetables can be planted. Rain has been plentiful along with warm temperatures, which makes planting all trees, shrubs, and perennials ideal.

A frequently asked question from our customers is, "How long do I have to water my newly planted trees and shrubs?" It takes at least a year for a plant to develop an adequate root system, so during that time you have to provide the water your plant needs.

Since we often take vacation during the hottest, driest months, we must have a plan for keeping plants watered. If you don’t have an irrigation system, the most reliable method is to invest in soaker hoses and timers so you can be certain that your plants are cared for while you are away. Check with our experts in the Garden Supplies department for everything you need to protect your investment.
