Your Weekly Plant Calendar for Week of May 20th

What should I be planting for the week of May 20th, 2012?

This week is the perfect time for most seedbeds, above ground vegetables, herbs and flower gardens.  May offers the most favorable weather conditions for planting Basil, Beans, Cabbage, Carrots, Corn, Cucumbers, Eggplant, assorted Melons, Okra, Oregano, Peppers, Sage, Squash, Thyme and Tomatoes.

Conditions are also favorable for plants that require transplanting, cultivating or treatment for pests.

Lawn Care

If you still have bare spots in your lawn, there is only a small window left to reseed those areas.  For the next two weeks, focus on the application of fertilizer to give your lawn a boost and crowd out weeds that pop up later in the season.

With termperatures quickly rising, make sure you are not mowing your grass too short, less than 3 inches, and you are watering in the morning or evening.
With continued great weather and occasional rain, it’s an ideal time for a short vacation.

Happy Gardening.
