Watermelons are delicious, heat-loving annual fruits that adore warm climates. This makes it very easy to grow watermelons in tropical countries. However, you can also plant watermelons in cooler locations. Just choose the short-season types and do all you can to protect them from chilly temperatures.
While most people go for annuals in their pots such as Marigolds, Begonias, Petunias or Surfinias many are opting for perennial and evergreen plants for a more structured look. Japanese style gardens lend themselves very well to container gardening with Acers and Bamboos selling very well. A great favourite still is Acer Purpureum with wonderful colours and structure it will grow very happily in a large pot. Fargesia Robusta bamboo gives good height and its stripped stems contrasting very well with the purple leaves, means they go great together. Especially now that growing exotic plants in the UK is becoming a trend.
As for very hot weather conditions, pollination of corn may be affected. You can go about this by planting corn on a staggered basis. Plant corn a few weeks apart. Another option is to select corn varieties that have different maturities.
