Flowers to plant in August

 

Pot Marigold (Calendula) Calendula is both vibrant and easy to cultivate. For a burst of springtime blooms, you can sow its seeds in August and September. Being hardy, these flowers can be directly sown in the desired flowering location. This can be accomplished by planting them in shallow furrows on the ground or in pots.


Cornflowers Just like pot marigolds, cornflowers (Centaurea cyanus) can also be sown in August to yield May flowers. Varieties like 'Black Ball,' boasting deep chocolate-hued blossoms, and 'Blue Ball' are great choices to cultivate. You can sow them directly by creating shallow furrows in the soil or by placing the seeds on the surface of moist, peat-free compost within pots.

Forget-Me-Nots Throughout the summer months and extending into September, you can sow forget-me-nots (Myosotis sylvatica). These make excellent ground cover plants for shaded areas and pair beautifully with tulips. They tend to self-seed easily once established. You can either sow them in seed trays for later spring planting or directly into the ground when you wish them to grow.

California Poppies Despite their exotic appearance, California poppies (Eschscholzia californica) are hardy annuals that can withstand winter conditions outdoors. To cultivate them, simply sow the seeds where you want them to bloom. This can be done by either creating shallow furrows in well-prepared beds or by placing the seeds on the surface of moist peat-free compost within pots.

Wild Carrot

Wild carrot or Queen Anne's lace (Daucus carota) adds a magnificent touch to wildlife gardens. Opt for a sunny, well-drained spot for this biennial plant and sow it in well-prepared soil at your chosen flowering locatio
