May landscaping and lawn tips
Pruning: As soon as possible after the blooms are spent, azaleas and camellias in need of a trim can be pruned. See the Pruning Calendar from Newport News Master Gardens and Virginia Cooperative Extension for all the info you need.
Native barberry bushes can be pruned now too, although the new growth is already budding out. These are hardy plants that do not seem to mind a haircut now and then.
Landscaping: If the garden stores are just too good to ignore, consider native plants that like our hot and humid summers. Click here to see what Master Gardeners recommend.
