Home and Garden To-Do for May

It's time for the second fertilizing of the lawn, and also time to fertilize roses, other perennials, and annuals.

Keep planting your vegetables in weekly or bi-weekly intervals, and start thinning out the established vegetables for stronger growth.

Prune spring-flowering shrubs such as forsythia, and remove flower heads from lilacs after bloom.

Prune evergreens and hedges.

Start pinching back chrysanthemums for a greater show of blooms in the fall.

You can still plant perennials or start them from seed.
