September marks the beginning of Autumn in some parts of the country, however Southern California Gardening does not comply with those rules. With that in mind, I’d like to share the garden chores that we in Southern California should be doing during our “pre-Autumn”.
In addition to the list above please add:
Pre #1 – Plan, Plan Plan! If you want to plant drought tolerant plants and natives, get your planning done now. The best months are upcoming – so take advantage of the air conditioning, a refreshing iced tea, and your ideas to be prepared for your fall planting.
I am also speaking again at the Harvest Festival, but a different day than is listed in the above mentioned post.
The Green Thumb’s Harvest Festival is on September 21, 2013. My talk will be at 10 am and I’ll stay there to answer questions, walk you around the nursery or just chat until about noon. Green Thumb is located at: 23734 Newhall Avenue. Newhall, CA. 91321
If you are ready to start step Pre #1, think about giving me a call to schedule a consult/strategy session 661-917-3521 or you can visit my website and contact me there.
