Test your green thumb with these.

Warmer months mean more time spent outdoors, with backyard parties and dinners alfresco—so why not create a garden that will impress any visitors? Whether you’re an advanced gardener or like to say you have a “black” thumb instead of a green one, there are plants that thrive in the summer months that will refresh your outdoor space. Danny Watson, The Home Depot garden center associate, shared his six favorite plants to grow in the summer months and how to care for them. Since summer can be a busy season with plenty of weekend activities, day trips, and longer vacations, you don’t have to worry about tending to these every day. They’re all fairly low maintenance and most don’t require frequent waterings (perfect if you live in an especially dry area). Some can even last past the summer months, too. Take a look at Watson’s picks below and try incorporating these in your outdoor space this summer.
