July brings some of the hottest temperatures throughout Florida, so residents should choose heat-tolerant plants when gardening. To see what you should plant this month, use these recommendations based on Florida’s climate regions.
Annuals: Gardeners in north Florida should plant heat-tolerant annuals, such as ornamental pepper, tropical milkweed, and crossandra.
Bulbs: Plant society garlic and gladiolus bulbs that can survive throughout the summer.
Vegetables: Try planting watermelon, okra, and eggplant this month.
Palms: Throughout the summer’s rainy weather, continue planting palms and support large palms with braces 6–8 months after planting.
