What to Plant in December?

by on November 23, 2011

If you live in a temperate environment like Los Angeles or in the South (zone 9 and 10), you are lucky enough to be able to grow all year long.  Here is a handy list for what to plant in December in these types of climates. I suggest planting them a container or raised garden bed with good organic soil and E.B. Stone Sure Start fertilizer. Add worm castings or tea if you have it.  For better luck sprouting seeds, a seedling starter may be what you want to try.
