Here in the southwest, we have lots of hardy plants that do very well in the heat. Pepper plants, like, jalapeño or Anaheim, along with bougainvillea, tend to take well to the desert heat and direct sun. However, as the temps heat up to the 90s, we find it necessary to shade more of our garden - an easy fix using our Plankets as effective, breathable plant shades.
Our leafy plants, like lettuce were the first to feel the heat, and are now properly shaded. Yet, the beans, cauliflower, and tomatoes are hanging tough.
What flowers and vegetable plants seem to be thriving at this time of the year in your neck of the woods?
