plants going to 'bed' early

finchelover(5b-6)August 21, 2011

Lot of my plants came up late & bloomed late and now they all look as if they are finished for the season. My salvia,obedient plants are about the only thing in bloom with a few roses. Anyone else going thru this. We have had a lot of rain.

I'm seeing some of the same thing with some plants. We seem to have had July in June, August in July, and now, come mid-August, the weather seems to be Sept. Nights in the low 60s, even high 50s. Daytime highs in the upper 70s, low-80s. I truly love this.... But...

It's only an uneducated *wild guess*, but some plants are more temp-dependent, especially nighttime lows, than they are day-length dependent.

Are they thinking that October is around the corner? Don't know. Could be.
