Many vegetables are perfect for planting in the summer. Some popular seedling options include:
- Green onions
- Asian greens
These seedlings do well in summer because they get to benefit from and use the oil from fertilizer throughout the springtime. They may also need help from soil-supplementing products such as mulch and fertilizers as you plant them.
You can plant Gladiolus corms throughout spring and into mid-December. Gardening experts recommend planting these bulbs every two weeks over several weeks. Since this flower takes about two months to bloom, staggering the planting allows your garden to continue flowering over an extended period well into the summer season.
Gladiolus corms come in a variety of stunning colours, including purple, pink, lilac, yellow, and white. Planting these bulbs alone can add a wide range of colours to your summer garden.
