As sprouts of new growth appear on the ground and buds begin unfurling on trees, it is time to plan for late spring and summer gardens. And whether you’re daydreaming of a bountiful vegetable patch or gorgeous flower beds, the best way to get started is to think about individual plants.
To get you inspired, we’ve assembled a plant-specific slideshow—including new varieties to consider this year, a look at some old favorites (lettuce!) and some of our recent obsessions (vines!). We’ve also put together some of our most-used sources from where to buy seeds and plants and well as a list of some favorite tools for planting.
Happy planning and planting for your garden!
