During the nomination of buds – to treat strawberries so that they are not attacked by weevils. Against flies should be processed on onions and carrots, as well as seedlings of cabbage.
You need to ensure that ants do not overeat the color of currants. Ants really do not like the smell of kerosene.
Black currant flowers must be checked for terry. Pale purple flowers having narrow and fused petals indicate that the bushes are sick with mycoplasmosis. These bushes must be dug with a lump of earth, removed from the site and burned. At the site of dug bushes for three to four years, it is not recommended to plant black currants.
During the budding of fruit trees, they must be sprayed with insecticides (on a wood cone).
The vegetables that have risen should be watered in time, since dry soil is detrimental to weak seedlings.

If the weather is dry, then you should regularly water strawberries, raspberries, sea buckthorn, black currants, greens and young vegetables. Because they have finely located roots and will quickly dry out.
The roots that were raised can be folded into a barrel and pour water. In a couple of weeks, an infusion of overwhelming weeds will be obtained, which will not be inferior to manure in nutritional quality.
In May, it is necessary to make the first top dressing of all vegetables and their thinning. Carry out foliar top dressing of berry crops. Namely, spray ash with an infusion of ash (pour half a glass of ash with boiling water and insist a day before use, add a bucket of water) or pink potassium permanganate solution.
As soon as the soil warms up well, you should begin to plant seedlings of fragrant peas and cloves of Shabo (they can bear the frost minus five degrees). Previously, 3-4 grams of nitroammofoski must be added to the holes.
A lot of trouble and flowers. If the hostess loves to engage in flowers, then you need to try.
If May begins cold, then at the beginning of the month it is necessary to continue to divide perennials (hemorokalis, phloxes, dolphiniums, chrysanthemums, astilbe).
Engaged in early May and dahlias.
Before May 10, the corms of gladioli should be planted, sow their seeds or baby. Before planting in the soil, tubers must be cleaned of existing scales and taken away patients.
When onion blooms, it is necessary to remove all underdeveloped and sick plants along with a lump of soil and destroy.
The first days of May are best suited for scaly reproduction of lilies (the procedure is performed until sprouts appear).
From May 15, you should proceed to the landing of an annual flow of flowers (Astra Annocation, Arkotis, Verben, Chinese cloves, lobelia, lion’s pharynx, annual species of chrysanthemums, etc.D.).
