Perennials For A Colorful Summer Garden
Just because July is here, doesn’t mean you can’t make some changes in your garden by adding a few new perennials. There are plenty of options, regardless of the type of space you need to fill. Not only can you plant in July, but it can be one of the best summer months to liven up your garden.
By filling your garden, flower beds and well-decorated backyard with these low-maintenance perennials, you’re guaranteed fresh blooms, beautiful colors and sweet scents every year — which could mean three to five years and maybe even over a century of a few hardy perennial flowers. Because the July sun is so warm, opt for doing your gardening and planting in the evening. This will give your plants time to soak up some water before the morning sun and the heat of the following day. Water your plants while they are still in their nursery pot and you are prepping your garden and digging your holes. This will help cut down on the risk of transplant shock. Once your plant is in the ground, water it again.
