Mountain West: July Garden To-Do List | Regional Report

Some pretty July bloomers: Orienpet lily (Lilium 'Schherazade', Zones 4-8), Durand's clematis (Clematis x durandii, Zones 5-11), and 'Munstead Wood' rose (Rosa 'Munstead Wood', Zones 5-9). Photo: Mary Ann Newcomer

Water wisely. If you have an automated drip irrigation system, make sure coverage is adequate throughout the garden.

Control pests. Some can be deterred with a strong spray from the garden hose every few days. In some cases, the application of insecticidal soap or diatomaceous earth is necessary. Remove squashed bugs immediately.

Keep up with your plants as they grow by gently tying them to their supports or encouraging them to twine up trellises.
