Gardening How-To Guides
Who says gardens can’t grow in fall and winter? In Southern California, we live in a wonderful climate that supports year-round vegetable gardens. Here’s some gardening tips to help with your fall and winter planting.
Pull out summer vegetables that have stopped producing. Buy six packs of seasonal vegetables including beets, cabbage, broccoli, celery, cauliflower, turnips, garlic, peas, spinach, Brussels sprouts and lettuce. Plant them in well-cultivated and amended soil. Water as the rainy season dictates. Also perfect for planting in the fall and winter: peppers, green onions, beans, lettuce and radishes.
When planting vegetables in containers you want to make sure that your pots have good drainage otherwise the roots will start to rot and your vegetables will not be happy.
