The Q&A Archives: Gardening in Mexico

Question: We have taken a job in Mexico. I will be responsible for the garden!! I am wondering if you have any "words from the wise" about gardening in Mexico? I will be at 5000 feet elevation and inland. I understand that most seed companies don't even ship to Mexico, but I can take some seeds with me and I can have more brought from the states peridoically. I am familiar with container gardening, but this will be my first time with a large piece of land to work with.

Good luck in your new venture!
