What else can be planted in July in the garden and in the flower garden

Garden plants

For a practical person, not a single piece of land will be empty in the garden, unless it is left under black steam. By July, the beds on which the early crops grew are vacated, and the question arises of how they can be occupied, because there are still many warm days ahead.
Let's talk in detail about what garden and garden plants can be sown or planted in July.

Greens

In the middle of summer, in a semi-shady area, you can sow borago, or cucumber grass: under the bright sun, this plant will quickly form flower arrows, and the leaves will become rough.

Dill you can sow all summer every two to three weeks. Before sowing, the seeds should be kept in water, otherwise they will germinate for a long time. Dill should be grown in well-lit areas with fertile soil.

If you plant watercress, you can eat its greens in two weeks, and lettuce will be ready to eat in a month.

All leafy vegetables require good watering, so keep this in mind. Do not sow these crops too densely: the plants will stretch upward and form flower arrows instead of leaves.

Before sowing spinach, soak its seeds in water for a few hours, and then you can harvest it in two to three weeks. Arugula will sprout within a few days after sowing. The leaves of the Solitaire and Rococo varieties are especially tasty and tender.

If you plant parsley or leeks in July, you can eat their greens at the end of the season, and next spring they will sprout much earlier than other crops.

Root crops

Radish with an interval of two weeks is sown several times per season, and in July is not the last time for sowing this vegetable. If the soil is well fertilized with nitrogen, the radishes will be juicy and crunchy. This crop grows best in areas where it was harvested early potatoes.

The daikon sown in July also grows well: its roots will be well stored throughout the winter and will not lose their freshness until the beginning of spring. In addition, sowing cabbage crops in July, which are both radish and daikon, will save you from the need to fight the cruciferous flea.

In the first days of the month, you can sow early varieties of carrots: they have time to ripen before winter and are stored even better than carrots sown in due time. To speed up the emergence of seedlings, the seeds are kept in warm water before sowing in order to wash out essential oils from them.

Cabbage

Early varieties of kohlrabi, broccoli and white cabbage are planted in July: if August is warm, they will have time to ripen. Varieties such as cabbage are gradually gaining popularity:

  • half-cabbage,
  • Chinese,
  • Beijing,

which can also be planted in July.

Legumes

Beans, beans and peas can also be sown in the middle of summer, since they are cold-hardy enough and can ripen even under the stingy and cool autumn sun, and collect tender pods asparagus beans you will be able to within a month after planting.

Before sowing, the seeds must be wetted to swell. If you are still afraid that the legumes will not have time to ripen, plant them in a greenhouse or greenhouse in the beds where they grew tomato or cucumbers.

Perennial vegetable crops

In July, it is advisable to sow garden crops such as peppermint or lemon mint, rhubarb, sorrel and perennial onions, for example, shallot, batun... Before the onset of frost, they will have time to form a root system, and in the spring they will grow early.

It is necessary to grow vegetable perennials in elevated places where snow will not accumulate or melt and rain water will stagnate. For the winter, the beds are covered with a layer of organic mulch at least 5 cm thick.

In more detail about what vegetables can be sown in a summer cottage and a personal plot in July, you will learn from the following video:

Flowers

In July, biennial seeds can be sown directly into the flower garden:

  • daisies,
  • pansies,
  • bells,
  • Turkish carnation.

These plants are beautiful and unpretentious, but for the winter it is better to hide them from the cold under a mulch layer of pine needles, which will not only warm them, but also protect them from various infections due to the phytoncides contained in it.

What to plant in June in open ground

In the first half of Juneyou can plant root vegetables for winter storage. Such carrots and beets will survive much better than planted in spring. Also at this time you can plant greens: various types of lettuce, parsley, dill and celery. It is convenient to plant greens in several stages during the season so that they are always fresh. Even during this period you can plant cucumbers with seedsdirectly into the ground (the main thing is to choose varieties suitable for these purposes).Radishcan be planted before mid-month for a second crop.

In the second halfmonths you can plant seedlings without film shelters. Feel free to plant in the ground seedlings of tomato, white cabbage and cauliflower, kohlrabi, broccoli, cucumbers and eggplants,as the threat of frost is over.

Also planted in the ground in a permanent place cannes, begonia tubersand propagated by cuttings dahlias. In the first summer month, you need to plant biennials for seedlings. And then in the fall, transplant them to the chosen place for flowering next summer.


What to plant in July?

July is running out, the beds are being vacated, I don't want to leave them empty. What else can be sown at this time so that it has time to grow by the fall? I know about turnips, radishes, greens such as dill and lettuce. What else?

You can plant the daikon root vegetable. It is very tasty for salads and in the cellar, after harvesting in the fall, it can be stored for several months. We recently planted a daikon in our garden and it has already sprouted.

And I love zucchini. Therefore, I plant them all year round, figuratively speaking. As soon as the beds are empty, I plant it. That would always be fresh and not overgrown to the table. Otherwise, they dry up after a while.

If you plant zucchini in July, then they will definitely not grow to frost. You can plant a radish in July and it will have enough time to ripen before the cold weather. Unfortunately, my daikon seeds gave only a few shoots, and my friends who bought from the same sellers did not have any shoots at all. So that this year we will be left without daikon.

Unfortunately, my daikon seeds gave only a few shoots, and my friends who bought from the same sellers did not have any shoots at all. So that this year we will be left without daikon.

I usually plant more radishes in July to sell later. And also on empty places you can plant early-ripening potatoes - until October it manages to grow and give a good harvest. I also sow dill, then cut it off and freeze it.

We have dill scattered throughout the garden, in many places and grows well there. If you make a separate bed for him, the dill will grow poorly. I tried to plant a radish in the summer, but it does not grow well in the heat. Therefore, we plant it only in the spring.

By July, I have already selected all the grown garlic and it is already possible to plant something on the vacated plot. I have two options: corn or black radish. Usually I plant the second, by October it ripens.

I manage to plant cucumbers twice. It all depends on your climate zone. It's warm here in September, so in two months you can safely grow and harvest a second crop. Greens grow well - parsley, dill, sorrel, herbs and tea herbs.

We tried to plant cucumbers for the second time in the summer. In summer, when watering cucumbers, they grow quickly and amicably. The first ones were plucked, and the second wave is growing, however, it is true, the number of cucumbers was less.

It will probably surprise many, but planted early cabbage and broccoli in early July. And quite successfully got the harvest in the fall. The neighbors on the site also planted kohlrabi and Peking cabbage and also quite successfully.

I have not tried this yet. Planted Daikon at this time, onions for herbs and Dutch cucumbers. True, cabbage should not be planted with seeds, but with seedlings. Then she will definitely grow up until autumn.


Rabatka

Rabatka is a German name that translates as a garden bed. This option is similar to a border flower bed, only flowers are planted in the flower bed instead of perennial plants. It is best to place such a flower garden along the house or any other suburban buildings.

When organizing a flower garden, experts recommend planting plants in two ways: in rows or symmetrically. Usually, a flower bed beautifully decorated with flowering plants can be seen in city parks.

Depending on where exactly you decide to place the flower garden, it will be possible to form it as a one-sided or a two-sided flower bed. In the event that you have planned a two-sided flowerbed with flowers on your site, then you will have the opportunity to plant tall plantings in the center, the main thing is that they do not obstruct the general view of the rabatka.

In the case of a rabatka, certain proportions must be taken into account, so if the garden bed is too long, then it is best to "break" it with thin paths, usually this is what they do in squares.

Regarding the width of the flower garden, it is in direct proportion to the size of the area of ​​the site and the height of the plants. So if the site is small, then it is best to form a narrow bed with low flowers.

The shapes of the flower garden are different, ranging from rectangular to ribbon.

In general, making a beautiful rabatka yourself is not difficult.


Hydrangea

Another popular plant in country gardens. Especially often you can find its varieties with white flowers. However, in some, for example, the large-leaved hydrangea, they can be blue, red, pink and lilac. The flowers of the plant form beautiful spherical inflorescences, panicles and scutes. The hydrangea will delight you with them every year, from July until autumn. But you should know that hydrangea belongs to plants that contain toxic substances.

Hydrangea is best planted in medium acidic nutrient soil with good air permeability. The place for the hydrangea must be chosen very carefully: without constant access to direct sunlight. The plant needs either constant watering or soil mulching. For the winter, even cold-resistant varieties need hilling, all others need shelter. In order to increase the frost resistance of hydrangeas, at the beginning of September, you need to stop watering, and then stimulate the lignification process by removing the lower leaves.


Perennial crops planted in mid-summer

Sorrel, rhubarb, onion (slug, batun, chives and fragrant) when planting in summer, do not sow in low-lying areas, which are flooded with water in autumn. Ideal predecessors for these crops are summer radish, peas, dill, potatoes, early cucumbers. Before the onset of stable frosts, rosettes of leaves will have time to form in these perennials. And closer to winter, the plants need to be mulched with peat or compost with a layer of 5-7 cm.

Plant feeding in July

Feeding the plants in July should be done by the middle of the month, this is the last such event in the current quarter. Top dressing in July of fruit and berry crops is carried out with complex mineral or organic fertilization, followed by watering, loosening and mulching of the trunks. For mulching, you can use sawdust, humus or straw manure, compost.

Fertilizers in July to areas where strawberries grow are applied after harvest. It should be complex and mineral dressings at the rate of 50-60 g per 1 m2, remove unnecessary mustache.

Another important activity planned in the gardener's calendar for July is shoveling the compost that was planted last year.

Trees with late ripening of fruits in the presence of harmful insects and diseases should be sprayed with modern plant protection products permitted for amateur gardeners. Observe the processing times given in the calendar. Spraying done at random or just in case is usually useless. Also in the gardener's calendar for July there are obligatory pest control work.

July is the month for harvesting ripe crops. Many garden crops are already ripe and ready to go for winter storage. But in their place, you can plant those crops that have time to ripen before a cold snap. So, throughout the summer, you can enjoy fresh vegetables all summer. Moreover, some crops are better preserved in winter if they were planted in summer.

Garden, vegetable garden and flower garden tips

It is very important to provide them with moisture during the summer planting of plants, because at the first stage of growth it is especially necessary, and there may be little rain during this period. Therefore, before planting the plants, the beds should not only be freed from weeds and loosened, but also thoroughly watered. You should also choose early ripening varieties in order to definitely have time to get the harvest. So, in the middle of summer - July, you can plant any kind of vegetables. The only conditions for planting are: early maturity and resistance to high temperatures. Planting some vegetables in July can help you reap a big harvest for the winter and give the soil a break from heavy perennial crops. Also, you will be in the black, replacing early-ripening vegetables with other types, you will collect twice as much harvest.
