Since things are blooming early

craftlady07(5b/6a)July 6, 2010

It seems like summer came on so strong and so fast that many plants are blooming now that shouldn't be in bloom until August or september.

Does this mean the fall show will be non-existant? Is it just the plants way of dealing with the heat - that they'll bloom, set seed and die earlier? is there any way to extend the blooming?


Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

My anenomes have been blooming in July instead of August for the last several years. The phlox are coming on strong and may be finished in a couple of weeks instead of continuing into September? I dead head most everything to try and extend blooms.
