Planting Calendar: October

“The best way to get the most from our mild climate is to map out the planting year in advance. You will never be able to use all of your garden all year if you wait to see a bare spot in your garden before deciding what to plant next. If you are a beginner, a good way to learn to think in terms of year-round planting is to divide the year into four main planting seasons: April-May, July-August, October-November, and February-March.”
