May Fertilizer Recommendations & Hot Weather Tips

May Fertilizer Recommendations

Below is a list of May fertilizer recommendations for your plants to keep your plants healthy and ready for the hot summer.

May Fertilizer Recommendations
May Fertilizer Recommendations

Fertilize your plants to get them in the healthiest condition before the hot summer is here. Well-fed plants handle the heat much better. For trees, we recommend fertilizing monthly until late fall.

We carry many brands of fertilizer including Ferti-lome, ColorStar (Nelson Plant Food), Medina, MicroLife and more.

Mulch

Make sure your plants have mulch, too, for better health. Mulching protects your plant’s roots from excessive heat and cold. Mulch helps roots retain moisture so less watering is needed to maintain the plant’s health. It also helps prevent weeds by choking off the air supply weeds need for growth. We recommend you mulch 3 inches deep for optimal results.

Hardwood Mulch. We carry mulch in 3 colors, red, black and undyed hardwood. We also have certified kiddie cushion which is a light brown.
