Food Gardening Magazine Publishes 10 Herbs and Seeds to Plant in May

Food Gardening Network, publisher of Food Gardening Magazine, has released their May 2022 issue, highlighting 10 herbs and seeds to plant this month.

Featuring four videos and articles, the May issue of Food Gardening Magazine helps readers determine what to plant in the ground this month, as well as five ways to prevent weeds and how to attract pollinators.

Senior Editor and Producer Amanda MacArthur says that “May is when gardeners can start sowing seeds directly in the ground, so those vegetables that won’t germinate indoors can get their footing now.”

In 10 Herbs & Vegetable Seeds to Plant in May, readers will discover 10 herbs and vegetables they can reliably start outdoors as seeds this month.

For gardeners who don’t want to spend a lot of time weeding, Preventing Weeds in Your Garden offers readers five free or low-cost ways to prevent weeds.

Gardeners can also learn how to attract more pollinators like green lacewings, beetles, and butterflies in How to Build a DIY Bug Hotel for Pollinators.

Readers will also find an updated classic recipe for Fresh Fruit Maple Ambrosia Salad, made with sweet tropical fruits, fresh berries, smooth Greek yogurt, crunchy walnuts, and real maple syrup.

The May issue of Food Gardening Magazine also includes in-depth articles about cucumbers, grapes, and lavender. These articles explore the Food Gardening Network’s latest collections while providing valuable information on their own. Subscribers get instant access to the premium collections themselves, too.

In 9 Cucumber Companion Plants You Want In Your Garden (+ 1 to Avoid), readers can discover nine herbs, vegetables, and flowers that will help deter pests like cucumber beetles, squash beetles, and aphids.

Readers who have considered making their wine, grape jelly, or enjoying grapes straight from the vine can learn about starting and caring for a grape vine in How to Grow Seedless Grapes.

In the article, Is Lavender an Annual or Perennial? readers can learn why this hardy, drought-tolerant herb is both.

The May issue of Food Gardening Magazine offers readers four feature articles, four accompanying videos, and three Collection Close-Ups spotlighting cucumbers, grapes, and lavender. These collections offer comprehensive, in-depth information about a single fruit, herb, or vegetable, from starting seeds to dealing with pests and diseases and from nutrition facts to delicious recipes.
