Best time of year for planting

Jennie's advice:

This is the best time to plant. If you are putting off landscaping projects, do it now because the warm soil and upcoming winter rains help plants get established.

Recommended trees/plants

  • Japanese maples
  • fig trees
  • large camellias
  • crape myrtle, gingko
  • pansy
  • stock
  • plumbego,
  • lavender
  • mustard
  • onions
  • sweet peas
  • ceanothus
  • dwarf pomegranate
  • Pacific wax myrtle.

For a Mediterranean look, try flax, phormium or pink fountain grass.

Mulch around plants to help them retain moisture with a product like Sloat Garden Center's Forest Mulch Plus.
