Can I plant veggies and flowers now?
Hardiness Zone: 6a

If you research "length of growing season in zone 6a" you find it runs from approximately 5/15-10/15. Figure out how many days are left, and you can grow things within that time frame. This information is available on seed packets, and online. Check out anything you are considering. You would have a better chance of success with plants already started than with seeds. Consider growing in containers which could be brought inside if necessary.
I am establishing a perennial flower garden. The plants (so far) have been planted between 6/1 and 7/25, and seem to be doing well. Won't know for sure until I see what comes up next year.
We are also in zone 6a. You can plant tulip bulbs, or any kind of flowering bulbs, now. It won't come until spring. Lettuce, radishes, peas, beans, spinach, can still be planted in your area. You can plant strawberry plants for next year and as well as fruit trees. Also, some kinds of garlic and winter onions can also be planted. Hope this helps.
