Pacific Northwest Gardening in July 

“In the midst of winter, I found there was, within me, an invincible summer.  And that makes me happy. For it says that no matter how hard the world pushes against me, within me, there’s something stronger – something better, pushing right back.”
― Albert CamusThe Stranger

  • Dead head flowers….roses, peonies, perennials, annuals, etc…
  •  Fertilize containers, baskets, perennials and annuals.
  •  Keep a look out for pests…sucking and chewing pests and hand pick or use neem oil or insecticidal soap.
  •  If you haven’t yet, apply mulch to keep weeds at bay and retain moisture.
  •  Speaking of moisture, keep plants watered during summer drought…don’t forget about the shrubs and trees if it gets really hot.
  •  Take stem cuttings to propagate perennials.
  •  Sow seeds for winter garden.
  • Stake tall floppy plants as needed.
