Oklahoma gardening is a great way to get a taste of
the Sooner State. Visit the newly refurbished Myriad Gardens and Tropical
Conservatory in Oklahoma City (www.myriadgardens). It is a 17-acre garden of wonders bound to delight
all families, gardeners and
photographers. If that inspires you to start your own garden check out the Oklahoma Proven program
for some planting suggestions or get training and become an Oklahoma State Master
Oklahoma Proven is a program coordinated by faculty in the Department of Horticulture and Landscape Architecture at Oklahoma State University. The goal of the program is to recommend plants well-adapted for use across Oklahoma.
Each spring, Oklahoma Proven’s executive committee announces four new plant selections for our region. Throughout the year test sites across the state evaluate the plants based on insect and disease resistance and ability to survive Oklahoma’s climatic conditions with minimal input.
What Are You Planting?
August is the time for planting cool crops like: kale, collards, spinach, cabbage and broccoli. Planting in summer helps crops mature before the first freeze in late fall.
Escape The Summer Heat With a Moon Garden
A Moon garden is a special place designed to be enjoyed in the cool of the evening. Plants are usually selected for rich fragrance and bright white colors that reflect the moonlight. Since I only have time to enjoy my garden after work on most days, a moon garden suits me well. In addition to fragrant white flowers and silver leafed foliage plants, we chose some plants that are known to repel insects or mix cocktails. We also decided that a water feature was needed - so we added a hot tub!
Insect repelling plants include: Pyrethrum daisy, Citronella Scented Geraniums, Lemon Grass, Wormwood, Tansy, Mint, Rosemary and more. Cocktail plants include: Cucumber, Mohito Mint, Wormwood, Cilantro, Lemon Verbena, Lime Basil, Rhubarb, Elderberry, Lavender, Lemongrass and more!
You can find loads of Moon Garden ideas by browsing our Moon Garden Store.
