 Don’t forgot, treat yourself to at least 1 great new plant before they are gone.

 Container gardens are  such fun and so easy!

 …And what will you put  in  your garden?

 Container Gardens are  a great way to start the  season! Anything can be  used, buckets, toys,  boots, wagons even tree  stumps! Get creative!

  Don’t forget to clean bird feeders.

  Divide crowded perennials and share.

 Prune  spring  shrubs,  after they  have  flowered  but before  they set  next  year's  buds.

 May To Do List …May is a busy month in Michigan gardens. Cold  quickly  becomes warm than rapidly changes to hot climates. Gardens suddenly  appear out of nowhere and demand attention. You may want a list of what to  do in the garden just to stay focused. Some friendly reminders of what you  can do. Don't panic, the season is just beginning.

Spring planting in the cottage garden

 Spread a new layer of mulch…then sit  back and enjoy!

 What a great time to take  your  meals outdoors. When  planning  your picnic try a  “make some, buy  some”  approach. For example, try  pairing store-bought  baguettes  and wines with  homemade salads  in a jar  and  no-bake brownies.  You'll  have  picnic success in  the  basket.
