We’ve seen the commercials, and we all know the stereotypes about California: blue skies, endless sunshine, orange groves, rolling vineyards, everything healthy, lush, and green.
 
The reality is that while gardening in California is in many ways a remarkably easy endeavor, it can be quite challenging to figure out what to do when. California is not a small place, and it is known for its diverse environment. There aren’t just a few USDA horticultural zones running through the state; there are twelve of them. California Fruit & Vegetable Gardening tells you everything you need to know to be successful.
 
No matter if you want to plant a large plot, just a container garden, or a tasty kitchen garden, you’ll be sure to find California Fruit & Vegetable Gardening an invaluable resource. It’s the next best thing to having a master gardener as your neighbor.
