Late autumn is the time to harvest the last of the summer crops. Store or freeze the crops and remove all foliage for your compost bin. May is preparation time for the upcoming dormant cold season and planning for spring.
Mother’s day is one of the highlights of May. Giving and receiving plants and flowers is a wonderful way to acknowledge someone special. Cyclamen begin to flower once the temperatures drop this month, and if kept moist will continue flowering all through the cold months.
