Seeds to be Planted in July and August

Monsoon hits India sometime around mid-June and usually attains its full vigour between July and August. And by the end of September, it starts taking the backseat. The splash of monsoon, in tune with freshness-packed air, endows new energy to the flora around you, and growing flowers, fruit and vegetable seeds becomes super fun.



One of the best parts of this season is growing seeds during this time. Contrary to what most people think - spring is the only time to sow flowers, fruit and vegetable seeds - planting between July and August and harvesting them later the same year is very much possible and fruitful. What about flowering plants

There are many flowering seeds for your monsoon garden as well. Let’s take a look at the flower, fruit and vegetable seeds you can plant in July and August.
