Southern California has a year-round growing season. You can have fresh produce continuously, but timing your plantings are important for success.
Vegetables can be categorized as cool season or warm season vegetables, based on their ideal growing time. We carry vegetables in jumbo-6paks, 4" pots, and a few in 1 gallon containers during the peak planting seasons.
Warm-season vegetables include: beans, tomatoes, peppers, corn, squash, cucumbers, melons, edamame, eggplant, tomatillos, okra, pumpkins, and zucchini, and watermelon.
Cool-season vegetables include: artichokes,arugula,asian greens, beets, broccoli, brussels sprouts, cabbage, carrots, cauliflower, celery, lettuce, onions, garlic, kale, collard greens, peas, potatoes, radish, rhurbarb, spinach, chard.
Herbs are often perennial, growing year round. Some tender herbs, like basil, does best in the warm season, and others like cilantro do better in the cooler weather. We carry mostly culinary herbs, rather than medicinal herbs.
Vegetables can be grown in containers, in raised beds, or in the ground. They do best in rich, well-amended soil, with regular water. See our soils and fertilizers page for items to keep your garden growing!
