- You can still plant heat-loving vegetables, such as eggplant, peppers, pumpkins, cherry tomatoes and okra.
- Prune hydrangeas and gardenias after they’ve finished blooming. Do NOT prune azaleas or camellias, or you’ll risk removing flower buds.
- Remember to garden early or late in the day, to avoid the worst of the heat. Wear a hat, sunscreen and mosquito repellant, and drink lots of water.
