VEGETABLE GARDENING JOBS FOR MAY

Vegetable gardening jobs for May are not a lot. The heaviest works are completed in April. Nature has woken up completely this month.

It is late to move plants and put them back. Avoid any stress for bad surprises. And with bad surprises I mean certain death.

The shrubs in bloom (and not only) need frequent irrigations to maintain themselves. But not only!

This is also the period when plants become more “appetizing” for insects. These ones, after a long and cold winter are hungry. With a pesticide you provide a preventive treatment.

I always remember to intervene with products that do not attack the plants, nor the good insects. I speak about two different cases that are not at all obvious.

Do not use toxic pesticides on fruit plants and beyond.

Both for our health but also for good insects. I speak about Bees or Ladybugs (but not only!). They perform fundamental activities for the reproduction of our plants through pollination.

So let’s save our plants, our health but do not disturb the rest of nature.

VEGETABLE GARDENING JOBS FOR MAY

In May the seedbeds will be full of seedlings.

It is time to repot them in individual containers. In some cases to place them. The temperatures will be stabilized, so let’s provide to sow in the ground.

I always support checking the moon phases before proceeding with any operation.

Important for both the garden and the vegetable garden is to provide fertilizer to our soil.

Do not underestimate this operation that requires attention. Always choose the most suitable fertilizer and in the right quantities.

Too much fertilizer does not mean helping the plant any more. Sometimes the fertilizers become aggressive for some plants. There is a risk of burning the roots.

Therefore always follow the recommended dosages on the bottles. If they seem excessive, let’s always ask for advice in the nurseries. Surely they will know how to help you.

I hope I have been helpful with these little tips.
