Welcome! It depends on where you are located and what you wish to plant. Can you give a bit more information, please?

Welcome, Kendrick! If you open the 'Zone Lookup' on the left blue column, enter your zip code, it will bring up your zone and also an option to click on a 'Planting Calendar' which will give you a good idea of what and when you can still plant.

What is it too late to plant?

well lets see, for most folks it isn't too late to plant anything really. Maybe too late to put out potatoes, they go out pretty early, or maybe spinach, but I guess it depends on what zone you are in (state)

Unless you live in the Pac. Northwest it's pretty late to plant any cool-season veggies. Lettuce, carrots, and all the cabbage-y things are going to be dry and tough and bitter if planted now.

As far as ornamentals, most things can be planted as transplants now, but starting from seeds, you'd be lucky to get any bloom before the end of summer.

Please do complete your personal profile with your city/state/country. It makes things much easier to answer your questions if we know where you are. Just your hardiness zone isn't enough, as it only tells us how cold it gets on average in winter.
