Gardening Tips

  • Because of the extremely long growing season in Zone 10, many gardeners here are still pulling things out from their gardens deep into the winter months. Many fall crops that are staples in other zones will grow great here during the whole winter season, much to the jealousy of gardeners from other zones! Because of the long, warm summer months, you get access to what is called “second summer.” If you start summer crops indoors around January or February, then plant them as soon as the weather is warmer, you can start a whole second round of seeds! You then will have two full summer harvests.
  • When it is extremely hot, a mulch or similar material can help not only keep the soil from getting scorched, but will reduce water evaporation. If watering the plants as often as needed is difficult, try a drip water system. Remember to do soil tests and add fertilizer or compost as needed to renew the soil. Shade cloths are also helpful in case of very high temps, but be careful as blocking too much light will starve your plants!
