Are you a late bloomer who hasn’t gotten into the gardening spirit this year until now with summer just around the corner? No worries, there’s still plenty of plants for you to grow and make a beautiful home! Here are some ideas to plant before you head out for summer trips and get busy with social activities:
June is when perennials are really starting to pop as they blossom, so if you’re looking for some quick color for your home, planting perennials is your best bet! They’re especially great if you struggle with gardening every year and want some reliable flowers and foliage that’ll get prettier year after year. There’s plenty of options still at this time of year, like anise hyssop, butterfly weed, coreopsis, balloon flower, coneflower, lavender, daylily, sedum, shasta daisy, wild indigo, and roses.
Though the selection has slimmed by this time of the year, there are still some annuals you can choose from for something extra in your garden, like vinca, zinnia, and marigolds. Since the weather gets dryer in June, be sure to keep those flowers nice and moist!
Fruits and Vegetables
It’ll be fall before you know it, and you’ll want some fun food ready to harvest by then! Get into the spirit of autumn early by planting pumpkins, squash, cabbage, peppers, leeks, tomatoes, beans, spinach, eggplant, lettuce, carrots, broccoli, melons, sage, chives, oregano, and thyme.
This is also a great time to start harvesting those plants from spring! Enjoy the fruits (and vegetables!) of your labor this summer if you planted around March things like peas, beans, and strawberries.
