Start Planning for Fall

Now that summer is officially here with 92 degree tomato ripening weather, we can take a look at the garden with an eye to fall. Whether you want a few extra perennials to make a new bed look full or need some seeds to grow fall veggies, the online stores are ready to accommodate.

Renee's Garden Seeds is reminding all gardeners to think of fall planting. I just bought some broccoli seeds to plant in pots in July for the fall garden.

What to Plant in June/July is here and the Second Season article is at this link.

Brent and Becky's is having their summer sale on bulbs. To get the discount, order by July 1st for fall planting. Here's a link to the bulb selection.
The perennials on sale at Easy to Grow Bulbs include a lime astilbe, Roxy Dahlia, and Starfire Phlox.

Sooner Plant Farm has several trees and shrubs on sale at the Clearance Zone link. One that I would love to grow is Red Buckeye (Aesculus pavia), They also have Black Barlow Columbine, Harvest Moon coneflower, and Sapphire Skies Yucca.

Another favorite, Bluestone Perennials has specials, too. Several hosta varieties, candy lilies, popcorn viburnum, and Sioux Blue Indian Grass. Here's that link.
