1. Tolerant Summer Plants:
Before digging into a new gardening project, think about the summer and what plants have the best chance of beating the heat. If you live in an area where the temperature can soar past 90 degrees, choosing suitable and heat-tolerant plants are crucial to consider. According to Garden in Minutes, the best flowers to grow during the summer include Madagascar Periwinkles, Lantana, Petunias, Marigolds, and Black-eyed Susans. If you’re looking to continue with your vegetable and fruit garden you started in the spring, think about adding lima beans, hot peppers, watermelon, cucumbers, tomatoes, sweet potatoes, and eggplant to your garden! Not only will these plants withstand the heat, but they will thrive in it!
