Living in sunny Southern California has its perks! Beautiful weather means bountiful blooms year-round for your garden. It is the beginning of fall, but it is also the prime-planting season for Southern California native plants.
Here are our top plant picks that will give you veggies for the winter and beautiful blooms for springtime.
Now that the weather is cooler, take advantage of fast-growing root crops such as radishes, beets, carrots, and turnips. Rooted produce thrives in cooler climates and will give you fresh produce all through fall and winter.
Leaf crops are perfect to sow this time of year. Plant kale, cabbage, lettuce, celery, broccoli, cauliflower, and Brussels sprouts and be ready for continual harvesting every couple weeks during the cooler seasons.

A native to California, the Mountain Lilac comes in a variety of colors, and shapes. Choose any color from white to a deep blue or size from ground coverage to a full sized tree, the Mountain Lilac will warm any soul this chili season.
Enjoy these crops during the cooler seasons. They will be sure to get you through the fall just in time for spring.
