Tips of the Week
Plant hot-weather lovers like hibiscus, esperanza (Yellow Bells), and mandevilla.
For summer annual color, add celosia and cosmos for upright color or portulaca (moss rose) for groundcover or to cascade down a container.
Add zinnias. I like the narrow leaf zinnia, which comes in many colors, and provides a tidy mound of on-going color along a border or in a container. It also makes a good flower for drying.
In the vegetable garden: plant okra, amaranth, Malabar spinach, pumpkins, winter squashes, watermelons and cantaloupes.
Keep those tomatoes well fed, they need good vigor to continue to set fruit.
