Water: Adjust drip system to accommodate new plants and the warming temps. Deeply water roses and fertilize.
Fertilize: Fertilize citrus and palm trees t the end of May. Also feed cacti and succulents with cactus fertilizer (if using regular fertilizer, dilute to half strength).
Prune: Cut back salvia plants to promote growth. Do NOT prune lower branches on citrus trees because this shades the trunk.
Plant: Plant drought-tolerant lantana, Mexican Primrose and gazania. Also a great time to plant palms.
