10 flowers to pick in July

Here are 10 gorgeous flowers to pick in July.

July is a wonderful time in the garden, with many flowers at their peak. 

 

Love-in-a-mist

Love-in-a-mist, such as a Nigella damascena ‘Miss Jekyll’, is a cottage garden favourite. It gives an airy feel to a flower arrangement, and its dried seedheads look attractive, too.

Pot marigold

Pot marigold (Calendula officinalis) is an easy-to-grow annual. It makes a good companion plant and a lovely cut flower, with other ‘hot’ coloured plant such as rudbeckias or contrasting with bright blue cornflowers.
