Microclimates in My GardenMicroclimates in My Garden
January 2, 2013

A microclimate is a small but distinctly different climate within a larger area. Here in my area of Utah there used to be many fruit farms. The farmers planted the trees on the foothills where it was a little warmer. Cold would puddle in the lower valley and often the blossoms would freeze there while those higher in the valley would survive. I see some differences in my own garden.
