The May Guide to Gardening
For the month of May we focus on Autumn, a beautiful season with colours and berries will be at their peak. Herewith a ‘to do’ list will help you to keep on top of important gardening activities.
The temperature is dropping and it is time to buy new seedlings, flowers and plants that can sustain the cold weather and spray the plants that get damaged by the cold with an anti-transparent spray.
Before you start planting any seeds you need to prepare the soil first. Harvest the last of your summer crops first and then start to prune plants and remove all unwanted plants and weeds.
Start by adding roughly 50% compost to one spade’s depth across the garden. Level the soil and leave for 2 weeks to avoid the compost from burning the young plants.
May is the time to plant deciduous trees or shade trees.
