Posted: May 01, 2016
Now is the time to start fertilizing your yard.
Use a slow release fertilizer, such as osmocote 15-9-12.
Place out stakes, peony cages and trellises around young plants.
It is easier to train young plants through the cages than manipulating mature plants.

Remove faded flowers on spring blooming shrubs such as Lilacs and Rhododendrons.
This encourages better flowering for next year, but be sure to finish by June to allow the plant enough time to set new flower buds.
