May Tips

Shane's Spot: Prepare for summer by adding to your garden!

While making additions to your garden, also keep in mind that there will be an increase in insect populations due to increased rain water. If you want to make some additions to your garden, you can visit a botanical nursery and assess your options. Warmer temperatures and increased rain water are coming, as the dry season is reaching its end. Keep an eye on your garden as this change in season may affect your plants. May is also a great month to plant tropical trees, since they will flower well. As always, remember to install your sod green side up!
