Sowing for summer

Post by eagergardener » February 17th, 2016, 4:19 pm

Hi everyone! I am from bahawalpur where the summer is pretty hot. And this summer I want some blooms in my garden. It's big garden and I was thinking of mass planting too. Aiming for lots of color as well I ordered a couple of seed packets from T&M. Now I need some advice in sowing them. Remember it gets greater than 40C in summers. Please tell me where I will fail or what to do to make everything tolerate all the heat. Thank you!Image

Achillea is a perennial, it will grow during summers but blooms in spring...
