On May holidays, commuter trains are crowded with summer residents - seedlings from window sills are massively moving to beds.
In addition to seedlings in the garden and flower beds, there is not an open edge. In order not to rush around about the site, grabbing either a rake or a watering can, they make up a stage work plan.
- Spring-cleaning. Gather garbage, old props and shelters. They wash and ventilate the greenhouses, check and prepare the inventory, and clean the gutters.
- Engaged in trees and berries. Weed and loosen the soil, dig around the trunk circles.
- Fertilize and mulch, feed and water.
- They fight insects - in the early morning they shake them from the trees. If you need to take drastic measures, resort to pesticides.
- Inspect the autumn seedlings. If the root necks are deepened, lift them.
- Inspect the trees. When the buds are completely bloomed, dried and diseased branches become clearly visible. Dead ones are removed, damaged ones are cut to a healthy kidney.
- Proceed to the raspberry. Dry stems are trimmed, tied up.
- The insulation is removed from the grapes, the vine is tied up, treated with nitrophene, ash is placed under the bush.
- Trees are treated with copper sulfate.
- Strawberries are watered and loosened, treated from harmful insects, fed.
- The lawn is perpendicularly combed with a rake.
Work in the garden
Some crops have already been planted, they are cared for in accordance with needs - watered, weed. The rest (legumes, carrots, dill) are planted in accordance with the compatibility of plants and the plan for crop rotation.
Sample work plan in the garden in May:
- In the early days of the month, cold-resistant plants (onions, Beijing cabbage) are planted under a film;
- Plant potatoes;
- Planted in a greenhouse seedlings of peppers, eggplant, tomato;
- Inspect the winter planting of garlic and onions, feed;
- By the end of the month, beets and cucumbers are planted in the ground;
- Perennials are transplanted (sorrel, rhubarb).
Landing and transplantation is done in the evening. Tomatoes at the end of the month are ready for transplanting into beds.
Insects, especially keen on cabbage, radishes, beets, are pollinated with ash or tobacco chips.
Further, May work consists in efforts for seedlings: regular watering, weeding after rains to preserve moisture.
Weed control includes weeding, uprooting, killing with drugs.
Work in the flower garden
Bulbs bloom in May. When flowering ends, let the stems and leaves dry completely. In perennials, yellowed leaves and peduncles are removed.
- Laying new flower beds - the soil is prepared two weeks before planting;
- Pruning roses;
- Perennials that propagate by division are planted;
- At the beginning of the month, heat-loving plants are sown in greenhouses for seedlings;
- Cold-resistant cornflowers and calendula are sown directly into the ground;
- Clematis tied up, fed with nitrogen fertilizer;
- Daffodils and tulips, if cold, are encouraged with potash top dressing. Irrigate plentifully, but not often;
- When the weather becomes steadily good, all annuals are massively planted in the ground.
- Harmful insects, slugs, daylily bugs are all May chores of summer residents.
