Spring Garden Calendar
From pruning to mowing to fertilizing, here's everything you should be doing right now to grow a beautiful garden.
Zones 9-11: May
•Lawns: Repair bald spots. Use plugs to mend St. Augustine lawns. Seed spots in Bahia lawns, keeping the soil moist until seeds sprout.
•Palms: Plant them when the soil's temperature is above 75ºF. Use twine to tie fronds up over the buds for protection. When new growth emerges, you can snip the twine.
•Beauty: Design a garden that attracts butterflies. Use lantana, red bird of paradise, hibiscus, pentas, or firebush.
