- Prioritize amending soil in May so that you’re ready to plant in late-May or early-June.
- Many perennials that have been hardened off, or acclimatized to our climate, can be planted in May.
- Harden off perennials you’ve grown from seed by extending the time they spend outside each day exposed to wind, cold, and sun until they’re ready to stay outside overnight in pots and then get planted in the ground.
- Cold, hardy annuals that have been hardened off, such as pansies, violas, dianthus, and some others can also be planted in May; ours will be available mid- to late-May, so come in for planting advice.
- Onion sets and seed potatoes can also be planted in mid- to late-May.
- Care for vegetable garden starters by upsizing into larger pots throughout May until they’re ready for planting in your garden.
- Begin seeding your garden in late-May or early-June, but have either frost cloth or a cold frame cover for your garden available to use if needed.
- Remain cautious: May weather can be unpredictable, so have frost cloths on hand to protect any new perennial and annual plants outside on nights of expected hard frosts.
