9 Plants & Vegetables to Grow in June

+ + +

1) Pumpkin

Now is the time to plant your pumpkin seeds if you want pumpkins for baking, fall d├ęcor, or carving. If you have limited space, look for compact types.

2) Moss Rose

These heat- and drought-resistant succulents, commonly known as portulaca, have a limited growth rate. They bloom throughout the summer.

+ + +

3) Tomato

It's not too late to plant tomatoes, which thrive in warm weather. There are tomato types that ripen in as little as 50 to 60 days, while others require 100 days or more.

+ + +

4) Zinnia

Due to their extreme heat and drought tolerance, zinnias bloom continuously without your assistance. These are available in vibrant red, orange, white, salmon, and hot pink hues.

5) Greens

In cooler sections of the country, now is the time to plant spinach for the fall harvest. Plant as you did in the spring, in rows. Lightly cover with dirt and maintain damp.

+ + +

6) Pentas

Pentas are beloved by butterflies, bees, and hummingbirds. They are equally effective for revitalizing faded pots and adding a depth of color to landscapes.

+ + +

7) Marigold

In vibrant hues of yellow, gold, orange, and even creamy white, marigolds complement any garden setting and provide a splash of color to pots and beds.

+ + +

8) Beans

They enjoy warm temperatures, so seeds germinate rapidly. The more frequently you harvest bush beans and pole beans, which require a trellis or net to climb, the more you will harvest.

+ + +

9) Lantana

Lantana is a pleasant addition to a garden in midsummer due to its exquisitely saturated pinks, purples, oranges, yellow, and pure white hues.
