Calloway’s Timely Tips for May Gardeners

May 7, 2015

MAY

May is the month that makes us think of beautiful flowers. Visits to Calloway’s / Cornelius Nursery, the Dallas Arboretum, and the Fort Worth Botanic Gardens will stimulate lots of new ideas and possibilities for your landscape.

Don’t forget Mom this month! Mother’s Day is May 10th. In a recent survey more than 30% of Moms of all ages want something garden related for her Mother’ Day gift. Instead of the usual vase of cut flowers, plan ahead and give that special person a naturally-inspired bouquet that changes with seasons, a beautiful container garden.

Although pansies may still be looking great early in May, it’s about time to pull them and plant summer flowering plants. Once it gets hot, pansies go down fast. Annuals and perennials give you lots of color bang for your buck. Pinch back growth of newly planted annual and perennial plants. This results in shorter, compact plants with more flowers.

Allow the foliage of daffodils and other spring flowering bulbs to mature and yellow before removing.

Spread a second application of pre-emergent for crabgrass and grass. Fertilize lawns with the final feeding before Summer. Fertilize roses every four to six weeks and control black spot with a systemic fungicide. Feed trees and shrubs with Calloway’s 16-8-8 Tree and Shrub Food.
