Zone 9b August Planting Guide
With the heat of August upon us, now is the time to begin preparation of our cool season garden. The hot summer sun brings hearty vegetable yields and flowers in full color! Now is a great time to ensure your garden is receiving sufficient water and that no garden pests have made their way to your precious plants. Consider placing an order for your cool season seeds from a local heirloom provider. Hardy vegetables like broccoli, cabbage, kale and radishes thrive in the cool season and the most dazzling varieties tend to sell out quickly!
