WHAT TO PLANT
Annuals/Bedding Plants: Plant heat-tolerant annuals, such as coleus, vinca, and portulaca. 

Bulbs: Cannas thrive in the heat of summer. New varieties have colorful leaves as well as flowers.

Herbs: Some to start now include basil, coriander, cumin, and mint. 

Vegetables: Beans, Chinese cabbage, Southern peas, and sweet potatoes can still be planted. Mulch beds well and monitor irrigation if the weather is dry.

WHAT TO DO
Pests: Monitor insect activity and learn which bugs damage plants and which do not.

Beneficials: Identify and conserve beneficial insects. Some insects should be encouraged in your yard! 

Tomatoes: Watch for pests, disease, and nutritional disorders on developing tomato plants. 

Palms: Identify and treat environmental and nutritional disorders in palm trees. 

Oleanders: Inspect chewed or ragged leaves for oleander caterpillars at work. 

Fruits: Propagate fruit crops by air layering and grafting. 

Perennials and bulbs: Divide clumps of bulbs, ornamental grasses, or herbaceous perennials to expand or rejuvenate garden beds or to pass along to friends. 

Shrubs: Choose from a wide variety of shrubs to add to the landscape now.
