Seed-Starting Tips for Southern California 

The land is starting to warm up after the winter season, so now that the month of April has arrived, it is time to plant your vegetable seeds. This is because the soil is beginning to warm up. When it comes to planting, it is a question that is tough to answer. Without taking into account the districts of San Diego and Santa Barbara, the Los Angeles region alone is home to more than eight unique Sunset zones. These zones are spread out over the region.

1. Many of what are considered spring veggies are actually winter veggies in Southern California.

An excellent time to consider planting summer crops from seed is in the month of April. Some examples of such crops include summer squash, sunflowers, basil, peppers, tomatoes, and beans. It is best to plant vegetables like lettuce and peas in the autumn so that they can be harvested during the winter.

2. Ignore the seed packet.

In the event that the seed business does not provide a description for warm regions, the timing that is printed on the seed packet is incorrect. Among the few exceptions, Renee’s Garden Seeds is the only company that genuinely offers seed starting dates for regions with warm weather. Additionally, you should think about purchasing seeds from local vendors.

3. To decide when to plant, take a look at the thermometer and weather predictions.

Below 60 degrees Fahrenheit, seeds will not germinate very well, and the ideal temperature for seed germination is somewhere about 80 degrees Fahrenheit. However, in our dry region, I suggest beginning earlier, closer to the 60°F to 70°F level, because the air becomes quite dry as it warms up. This is because the temperature is rising.

4. Don’t plant all your seeds at once.

It is recommended to plant at intervals of approximately two weeks. In particular, when it comes to root vegetables, where you pick the entire plant and, as a result, do not receive any further yields, this provides you with a better probability of success as well as the option of having a longer harvest season regardless of the weather.
