When it comes to maintaining and growing your garden, the cool months are just as important as the warm ones. As we enter fall, a bit of work and planning now can pay dividends when spring and summer roll back around.
We’ll talk about it in this issue.
In most years, early November marks the beginning of the fall planting season and continues on through January. A good key to follow is to begin planting when the heat and the Santa Ana winds die down.
You may be surprised at the variety of plants which do very well during the fall season in Southern California. For example, the majority of shrubs, trees and groundcovers will do very well when planted in the fall.
This is the perfect time to plant spring bulbs (think tulips and irises) and cooler season plants. To better your chances of success, key in on native California and Mediterranean plants as they are ideally suited for our Southern California seasons.
While you won’t see much in the area of results for a few months, the payoff will be huge in the spring.
Cool-season vegetables can be planted from seed or put out as small plants as soon as the heat as passed. Good suggestions include radishes, carrots, cilantro, beets, kale, spinach, collards and turnips.
