Spring Garden Calendar
From pruning to mowing to fertilizing, here's everything you should be doing right now to grow a beautiful garden.
Zones 3-5: May
•Insects: Treat aphid outbreaks with insecticidal soap or horticultural oil. For smaller infestations, a blast of water removes feeding aphids.
•Plantings: Choose annuals that flower all summer, such as angelonia, zinnia, pentas, and trailing petunia. When frost is no longer a threat, plant canna and calla lily outdoors.
•Edibles: Set out warm-season transplants of tomato, okra, and pepper. Sow cucumber, bean, and melon seeds.
