Do you live In coastal southern California? Do you grow any of these plants?

We've had garden experts create monthly plant care reminders for our members to use. This set is for Sunset Zone 24, which is mostly coastal southern California (find your Climate Zone Here). You can get these sent directly to your "My Plant Care" page each month. Do this for any plant in your garden to create a complete calendar of what to do you each month in YOUR garden - here's a tutorial.

Simply scroll down and find any plants you have in your garden and click the viewbutton to see the plant care and the usebutton to have the instructions sent directly to your My Plant Care page (which creates your own personalized plant care calendar). Here's an example from Mitch's southern California Garden.
