6 Garden Plants That Like A Late Start

Didn’t get the start you would have liked on planting your garden? That’s alright, you’re definitely not the only one. Now that we are officially into summer, it seems like spring flew by. The good news is that planting a garden is not a lost cause. Here are six garden plants that can still be planted now and produce a bountiful harvest:

  • Carrots: Carrots can be planted throughout the summer; this continuously offers a fresh crop. Make sure all carrots are harvested before winter otherwise since they are a biennial plant they will flower and produce seeds.
  • Cauliflower: Cauliflower is a cool weather plant and should be planted six to eight weeks before the first fall frost. Cauliflower only needs about 6 hours of sun a day.
  • Broccoli: Broccoli is a very hardy vegetable, and needs about 85 growing days to reach maturity. Broccoli will need full sun. It is also important to keep the developing broccoli crowns dry.  
  • Spinach: Spinach prefers soil that has slightly cooled down after peak summer heat has passed. This vegetable likes full sun.
  • Onions: Onions are very hardly when faced with cool weather. When planting make sure they will get full sun and have loose, well-drained soil that is rich in nitrogen.
  • Radishes: Radishes like lots of sun and well drained soil. They can be planted every two weeks to maintain a continuous radish harvest.

These 6 plants should help you salvage your gardening season!  During every step of planting your garden and maintaining it, stop by your local Centra Sota Country Store for all of your gardening needs.
