Garden Guide for Southern California

The climate of Southern California is great for creating a garden that bursts with color and blooms virtually year-round. Start with our month-by-month calendar, which guides you with tasks and options for each season, including tips for maintaining a healthy, beautiful lawn. Winter is the time to rest, but a little pruning, fertilizing, and organizing can give you a leg up on the rest of the year. Come springtime, garden activities include mowing and fertilizing, as well as plant prep for hotter summer temperatures. Prime growing season tasks include keeping on top of weeds and spent flowers and supplementing water when needed. Unlike much of the country, Southern California gardeners spend fall planting again before waiting for winter rains and restoration. Through all the seasons, help your garden by planting a few favorite, super-easy perennials and hardy native plants. Even though the sun shines almost year-round in Southern California, deer can be an issue; check out plants less palatable to these pesky animals. If you're looking for inspiration, tour a Southern California garden where the gardener uses her spaces to create garden rooms.
