Plant of the Week: Phlox
Tips of the Week
Plant herbs like basil, thyme, oregano, lemon balm, lemon verbena, and rosemary. These work well even in containers.
Weed!! If you let the weeds go to seed, you'll have them next year. Avoid chemicals since they will do no good right now. The best thing is a shovel or other tool. And, keep them mowed.
Plant seeds of zinnia, sunflower, globe amaranth and other summer-loving plants.
Plant beans, cantaloupe, watermelon, pumpkin, tomatoes, peppers, okra, Southern peas, eggplant, sweet potato slips, and squash.
Let foliage on spring bulbs turn brown before cutting back. Their leaves are getting fuel to feed your bulbs until next year.
Plant perennials and shrubs.
Prune evergreen shrubs.
