Plant with caution
• Continue to plant trees, shrubs and roses. Keep well-watered. But don't plant bare-root types, which need cool, wet weather to take off.
• In the northern Midwest, you may be able to divide and transplant fall-blooming perennials now (it's usually too hot and dry this month for this farther south). Wait to divide spring bloomers until fall.
• In the northern Midwest, you can continue to plant summer bulbs such as gladiolus corms, canna rhizomes, and begonia tubers.
