Late Spring: Lots to do arround crabapple- and petunia-planting time!


Late Spring

These ensemble editions of our What's Up! and Grow newsletters were written for Late Spring. They address what people see in Late Spring as well as what you can be doing then to have a more beautiful, productive, easy-care garden.

  • It's Late Spring when the crabapples have bloomed and summer annual flowers and vegetables are in or being planted.
  • In Zone 5-6 across the center of North America, that's Mid-May to Mid-June
