Are you done planting yet? We're not. We're adding a cut flower garden filled with Dahlias, Zinnias and Green and Gold, a Euphorbia like annual that we hope self sows.
Of course you can continue to plant in July, but It is important to monitor the garden's need for water. Containers need daily checking unless you've planted succulents, and a biweekly douse of liquid fertilizer makes a huge difference in keeping your ensembles happy.
