Here is your list of tasks to do while Gardening in October. Along with the list, be sure to think about preparing for the wet Santa Ana Season we all hope to have. Creating rain gardens, buying a rain barrel or two, building up the soil with sheet mulching to turn your garden into a sponge are all great tasks to add to your list.
Gardening in Southern California can be a chore in the hot hot summer, so remember we’re on the easy end of this thing now – November December and on into the cooler months will be spectacular. Remember to take it slower at the beginning of the month and add more tasks as the weather cools.
