It isn't too late...

Thanks to gardener-blogger Tracey at Life in Sugar Hollow for posting this bit of info from the Johnny's Selected Seeds newsletter. I had inadvertently deleted the newsletter, and despaired of finding this list again. According to Johnny, you can still plant in June from seed the following:

HERBS - Basil, borage, calendula, chamomile, chervil, cilantro, dill, epazote, flax, marjoram, milk thistle, parsley, poppy, savory, shiso, and spilanthes.

FLOWERS - Ammi, calendula, centaurea, cleome, cosmos, grasses, hyacinth bean, marigold, morning glory, nasturtium, phlox, poppy, reseda, salpiglossis, scarlet runner bean, snow on the mountain, sunflowers, tithonia, and zinnia.

VEGETABLES - Beans, beets, carrot, corn, cucumber, endive, escarole, kohlrabi, kale, lettuce, pumpkins, radishes, spinach, squash, and Swiss chard.

Living here in lovely Maine, planting in June is a must! Now, off to Johnny's to pick up a few more flower seeds :-)

Good evening from North East England - hope your pots give you lots of colour around the deck. I like planting up containers and have gone for a pink theme this year - busy lizzies, small confier in the middle, ivy at the front. Also I have some lillies in pots so I can pop them into borders when I have a bare patch. Can't garden until the weekend as its pouring with rain and forecast until Saturday

Hi Mary,
Welcome to Henbogle! Sorry to hear about the rain, at least it gave you time to visit my garden via the miracle of technology :-)
