 The month of May is the pleasant time; its face is beautiful; the cardinal sings his full song, the living wood is his holding, the mockingbirds are singing and ever singing; there is a welcome before the brightness of the summer.

April showers are said to bring May flowers but, wonder what April snow showers are going to bring.  Well, two things for certain the month of May brings are Mother's Day and DANCE recitals.  Rolling Hills and Village Gallery are ready for both.  Rolling Hills is bursting into bloom with all kinds of flowering shrubs, perennials, and annuals from Azaleas to Zinnias.  Also available are a variety of hanging baskets, both flowering and ferns, container gardens in a variety of price ranges, and of course flats of annuals.  As always our gift cards are available so Mom can make her own choices whenever she is ready to plant.  

The Village Gallery is offering several specials for Mother's Day including a vase of a dozen red roses at $75.00 or a vase of a half dozen at $45.00.  Beautiful cut flowers arrangement start at $45.00 and single or multiple stem bud vases are also available.  Select outdoor plants dressed with bows are $50.00 and container gardens are available starting at $35.00.  Here you will find many things to bring a smile to Mom on her special day.  


May is also the month of DANCE recitals.  All kinds of items await dance moms and grandmoms and other dance relatives for that special dancer in their lives.  There is a zoo of stuffed animals, glasses, dance stars, balloons, piggy banks, candy pails, and key chains to delight dancers of all ages.  Of course a wide variety of Mylar and latex balloons are also available for balloon bouquets.  


May is also a great time to be outside working in the yard and the garden.  Here are some tips for things that should be done in May:
 
  • Liquid feed young plants regularly to keep them growing strongly
  • Sow half-hardy annual seeds outdoors where they are to flower
  • Tidy up clematis vines once they have finished flowering
  • Clear pots and containers to make way for summer displays
  • Prune spring-flowering shrubs once they have finished flowering


  • Plant out tender vegetables once the frosts have passed
  • Tie in tomatoes and keep liquid feeding them
  • Put straw under strawberries to prevent young fruit rotting
  • Sow sweetcorn in blocks to aid pollination and sow root vegetables
  • Plant out dahlias at the end of the month


         – The beginning of May is the perfect time to plant up a container with perennials rather than annuals. Because they come back year after year it’s a really economic option, and you can transplant them later into the garden if you want. Choose from penstemons, agapanthus, sedums, heucheras…or whatever takes your fancy. The, hopefully, warmer weather and rainfall will help them settle in nicely.
