How to start a kitchen garden: what to do in July | House & Garden

What I love about my vegetable garden at this time of year is that it is almost as full of flowers as it is with fruit and veg. Alongside the rows of beans, kale and lettuce, beds are edged with marigolds or zinnias, and there are obelisks of sweet peas at either end of a bed (or sometimes in the middle). I also let a hollyhock or two seed around, as well as opium poppies, toadflax, ammi and verbena. Growing flowers alongside vegetables – or companion planting, as it is known – is something I’ve always done. There is no particular science to it, but the flowers attract more pollinators, which will in turn help the pollination of your crops. They can also lure the less beneficial aphids and other pests away from the vegetables and fruit; blackfly, for example, will colonise Ammi majus, lessening the chances of an infestation on your broad beans. And, more than anything else, letting flowers creep around the edges of your vegetable plot makes it look so much more attractive.

Water is essential. This time of year can bring inconsistent rainfall, and with the heat, supplemental irrigation may be needed. Make sure to water deeply but infrequently when irrigating. This is determined by soil type and plant needs.

Why You Should Grow Native Herbs in Your Garden

Monoculture and non-native landscapes harm our natural ecosystems in more ways than one, which is why it’s important to keep balance! A good way to minimize this is by growing more endemic and native plants and herbs in your garden. Not only will this give you abundant harvests of these special herbs, but it will also help restore essential life to your biome.

Garden Guide

Tomato plants are heat-loving plants that need 6 to 8 hours of sunlight a day but don't like scorching heat any more than the rest of us. When daytime temperatures soar into the 90s and hover in the 70s or warmer at night, tomato plants may keep blooming, but the flowers will fail to pollinate and then fall off. During extended periods of extreme heat, tomato plants can suffer severe stress and go into survival mode, putting all their energy into surviving rather than producing fruit. Even heat-tolerant varieties will slow down production in extreme heat.

Improved Herbs

One of the best things about being in the plant business for over 40 years has been trying out new and rediscovered plants. Every year I like to grow the latest perennials and annuals, testing them to see if they’re worth ordering again the following year. The herb garden—though it seems a pretty staid and quiet sanctuary—has actually had its share of exciting new plants too. Visions of sauces and meats, drinks, and pastries flavored with delicious herbs tended by my own hands are all the inspiration I need to try something for the first time. Additionally, these plants add color, texture, and scent to my containers and gardens. In many cases, I’ve been pleasantly surprised to find that these improved options are actually better looking and/or tasting than the familiar staple. The following are some of my favorite herb varieties. Some are new—and some have simply flown under the radar for far too long.

The Small World of a Japanese-Style Courtyard Garden

Hi GPODers! Today we’ve got an incredible garden story from a frequent GPOD contributor that is a demonstration of how magically small our big world can be. Bas Suharto has previously shown off gardens he has designed and built (check out some of those submissions: Building a Garden With Bas and Building a Japanese-Inspired Garden) as well as his own incredible home gardens (Parterre Garden in Ottawa and A Japanese-Style Garden in Ottawa). But the garden in this most recent submission caught Bas’ eye long before he was asked to lend a helping hand the space.

How to Coax Bountiful Blooms From Your Hydrangeas

While pruning a neighbor’s much neglected Hydrangea paniculata recently, I found myself musing on the history of this genus in American gardening, whose popularity has waxed and waned through the years. Grown throughout the country in its many forms and employed in countless ways, Hydrangea has found prominence in every style of garden. Often, hydran­geas have been taken for granted and left unattended, like this one I was pruning. Yet even among such disregard, this versatile ornamental lives on, winning over new generations of fans.

Garden Patio Ideas

A garden patio provides a versatile space for you to dine, relax, cook and eat food, and even grow plants. It can be designed to complement the overall look of the garden, incorporate seating and/or storage, and include any ‘must-haves’ like a built-in barbecue or pizza oven. Before you start choosing your new patio, work out how much space you have and what you want from it – do you need space for a barbecue and dining or seating area? Do you want to have planting pockets in the patio itself or will you be happy with container displays? And how about installing some eco functionality to your garden while the patio is being dug, such as creating a land drain, soakaway or underground water storage tank, to reduce the amount of rainwater being sent into the sewerage system and even save water to use on your garden?

Six on Saturday: a Mixed Year For Clematis

I have mentioned the performance of my clematis this year several times, and thought I would do a quick reccy of them today to substantiate my feeling that it is a poor year for them here. Not including those that didn’t perform at all last year (mostly herbaceous clematis in the middle of borders, which have unaccountably been reluctant to establish), there are 15 in flower, 17 not yet flowering (many a long way off doing so) and 5 no-shows. All those not yet flowering would usually have been blooming since mid-June or so, other than ‘Duchess of Albany’ and ‘Gravetye Beauty’, who don’t start till later (strange then that ‘Princess Diana’, also a C texensis, is one of the first Group 3 clematis to flower).

The "Plants" page on the diygarden.cc website containes information about plants, which are living organisms belonging to the kingdom Plantae. They are characterized by their ability to produce their own food through the process of photosynthesis, using sunlight, water, and carbon dioxide to create glucose and oxygen. This process takes place in specialized structures called chloroplasts, which contain the green pigment chlorophyll responsible for capturing light energy.

Plants come in a wide variety of forms and sizes, ranging from tiny mosses to towering trees. They play a crucial role in ecosystems, providing oxygen, food, and shelter for numerous other organisms, including animals and insects. The main parts of a typical plant include roots, stems, leaves, and flowers. The roots anchor the plant in the soil and absorb water and nutrients, while the stems provide support and transport water and nutrients throughout the plant. Leaves are the primary sites for photosynthesis, and flowers are reproductive structures that produce seeds.
