Planting in June and July: Veggies for Your Ontario Garden

As many experienced gardeners know, planting isn’t a one-and-done process. Not only do you have to consistently care for your plants once they are in the ground, but they also have different planting times. Certain flowers, trees, and shrubs are best planted and bloom at specific times of year, and this is even more important for vegetables. To have a successful vegetable garden, pay attention to what months you should plant each species. In this blog, we’ll discuss which veggies you should plant in June and July!

There are two different ways to plant vegetables – directly sowing the seeds and transplanting seedlings into your garden. Buying seedlings or starting seeds indoors can help increase your growing time, especially in areas such as Ontario, where the frost-free growing season may not be as long as you’d like. However, there are also many vegetables that can be directly sowed and still have enough time to produce an ample harvest.

Direct Sow Seeds

While the growing season starts as soon as the last frost is over (and even earlier if you start them indoors), some vegetables can still be planted in June and July for a spring or fall planting schedule. Depending on your planting schedule, beans, corn, and cucumbers can be planted by directly sowing seeds in early June or late July. Gourds, squash, pumpkins, southern peas, and okra are also great options to plant this way between June 18 and July 18

Transplant Seedlings into Garden

Whether you have started them inside or are buying seedlings, many vegetables should be transplanted into your garden in June and July. Sweet potato plants should be transplanted in early June. Depending on your planting schedule, eggplants, peppers, and tomatoes can be transplanted in early June or mid-July. Finally, broccoli, brussel sprouts, cabbage, cauliflower, kale, and kohlrabi can all be transplanted in late July.

Even if you are getting a late start this gardening season, plenty of vegetables can still be planted in the coming months. For more gardening advice or to pick up your next plant, stop by Bloom Green Garden Centre. Good luck, gardeners!
