Living in Southern California means we can garden year-round, and when we get daytime temperatures in the 70s, it’s time to dig in and plant cool-season vegetables and bedding plants.
If you’re new to vegetable gardening, ask one of our garden design experts, CJ or Steve, for assistance. They can help you determine what to plant, what to plant in if you don’t have an area of ground, and how to properly prepare your soil for a bountiful crop.
Our huge inventory of containers, some of which look like concrete, clay and stone but are lightweight and movable, give you the opportunity to grow vegetables, herbs and other plants on a balcony, deck, or hanging. Our raised vegetable beds have been extremely popular, and come in two sizes. The large one is below.
- Arugula (rocket)
- Brussels sprouts
- Chard (below)
- Kale (below)
- Mustard greens
- Onions (bulbing)
- Onions (bunching–standard onions harvested before they form bulbs).
- Pak choi (Bok choy) (below)
- Coriander (cilantro)
