|I have always admired the gardening abilities of others and I usually tell myslef|
|Wow! Have I got a resource for you! Arizona State University has put their Master Gardener Manual online (http://ag.arizona.edu/pubs/gar...) and you can visit each and every chapter to help you build your knowledge about Arizona gardening. I hope you'll visit and take lots of notes. There are lists and lists of suitable plants, plus garden bed preparation hints and, most importantly, planting dates for veggies and fruits and flowers, too. It will guide you every step of the way to creating and maintaining your own garden oasis.
Best wishes with your project!
