Our first concern
They are the flowering plants (roses Mr a.) to cut flowers that ends their flowering to cause the production of new buds.
Weeds after several rains have started to create a suffocating situation in our garden and immediate needs while carving aeration of the soil. Along with weeds and gather all the fallen leaves because they are sources of infection.
Pruning at borders and generally all trees can be done to get the final shape that will keep for a long time until next education pruning.
In what plants are indoor or outdoor pot and judging that the pot they want change is the most appropriate time to do this. In what plants are blooming even change will be the end of it.
The beds, the islands and the pots can receive annual plants. The bulbous flowering this time (Cyclamen cannes dahlia etc.) can be placed in their final positions. May is the most appropriate month for planting aquatic plants.
The cutting of the lawn should be done on a weekly basis and much attention is paid to unusual spots that may appear to take the necessary countermeasures.

The arboriculture work is interesting and intense. In oporokipous performed slightly milling or carving and begin watering of trees, similar species and varieties. At that time all the trees and shrubs should be done to remove cuttings and "gluttony" shoots that grow very quickly.
However these operations should not be applicable in the period Flowering fruit, because they are in the most critical moment and this disorder is possible to eliminate the flower.
Also necessary debudding and topping applied to assist the balance of the branches of the crown, as well as the creation of karpogonon organs. Alongside is the thinning of the fruit for the acquisition of larger and higher quality products, in particular apple, pear, quince, just the fruits reach the size of small walnuts, and, in peach, apricot, plum, etc. When the kernels are beginning to harden them.
In seedbeds and nurseries ground vegetation likewise performed debudding and pinching to favor the development of prized shoots. Vigorously continuing the combat current and emerging disease attacks of mildew, the fousikladiou etc. To aphids, the application of the appropriate instruments. Placed colloidal movies mite plums (liparis) and are sprays on apple and pear trees to prevent Cydia and fousikladiou. Also hung traps against the Mediterranean fruit fly.
