The Q&A Archives: Planting Instructions According To My "zone"

Question: I was wondering if it is possible to give planting and growing instructions according to the zone of the country that I live in?

Answer: In your mild winter climate you can plant year around. There are specifics on vegetable planting on the following website (developed by the University of California):

As for shrubs and perennials, you'll find a ton of information in Sunset Western Garden Book, available at most libraries, garden centers and book stores.

Hope these suggested references provide the specifics you desire about gardening in your region!
