Now that the Month of May is upon us, are you wondering what needs to be done in the yard or garden? We have a few suggestions!
By now you should have at least one potted cacti around your home or garden area. We love the agave because they are easy to grow in garden pots, they fit into traditional and contemporary landscape designs and they are easy to grow. This may you should get a long handled saw and some heavy gloves, remove dried leaves from around the bottom of the plant and use the saw to prune back any growth not wanted. Basically just clean them up. This prepares them for upcoming growth spurts!
It's that time again to refreshen up all your garden pots. Ease overgrown plants out of their containers and root prune them. Then replant them in the same vessels filled with fresh potting mix. Or better yet, move them to new larger containers and use new soil mix. This is the time of year to transport healthy plants to new homes.
Every thought about trying a strawberry plant. We'll we have the strawberry pot that works perfect. Made of real terracotta clay they come in 6 pocket, 9 pocket and 12 pocket pots. Place a strawberry starter plant in each pocket.
These pots contain the plants wondering roots and keeps them from getting out of control and taking over your garden. Alpine strawberry plants are available now and they are super flavorful. They produce fruit from Spring to Fall.
Lastly, this is the time to sow seasonal color from seeds. Or if you are into transplants from the local nursery now is the time to purchase them and pot them for color on your patio or in your garden area. Flowers like ageratum, coreopsis and gaillardis are beautiful and easy to grow in garden planters. And, don't forget, to feed potted citrus trees with a citrus fertilizer to promote good fruit development now. We love these potted also!
