What to do this week[end] in the zone 3 garden – May 14th

  • Divide hardy perennials like hostas.
  • Top-dress perennials and fruit trees/bushes with compost or fertilizer. Keep them watered.
  • Hit up some PLANT SALES? (see above)
  • Sow orach, dill and swiss chard seeds outdoors. Swiss chard seeds should be soaked in water for 15 minutes before planting for better germination.
  • Water everything in your damn garden and feel guilty about doing so because the rain barrels are empty and it’s so dry and what is going on with this spring, you guys?
