Planting trees, plants, flowers, shrubs, vegetables and fruit can lead to a beautiful landscape and delicious fresh food.  But, Arizona has a climate that swings from quite pleasant with occasional bouts of cold all the way to sweltering heat.  Because of the varying temperatures throughout the year, there are times when planting new plants of any kind should be avoided and times of the year when it is ideal for optimal growth.  In Arizona, the typical planting seasons are Spring and Fall.  In fact, what is common knowledge within the planting world around the country is flipped on its head in Arizona.  Planting season is vastly different in Arizona than it is elsewhere.  Planting in the coldest part of winter and hottest part of summer will likely not yield you much growth with your new plants.  By planting at the right time different crops will yield at different times of the year.  This will allow you to enjoy various plants seasonally and learn to eat more seasonally which is better for health.  If you would like to plant seasonally appropriate plants but do not feel that you have an adequate green thumb, hire a professional landscaper that can help your landscape become all that it can be.  Below we discuss what you should pant and when so that you can create the landscape of yoru dreams.

1. Cool Season

  • For plants and vegetables that thrive during the cool season you can begin planting in late September or October.  Plants and vegetables that do particularly well in the cool season include radishes, potatoes, peas, turnips, spinach, cabbage, broccoli, beets, carrots, lettuce, and onions.  Plants that do well in cool season include pansies, petunias, geraniums, snap-dragons, zinnias, marigolds, amaryllis, daffodils, lilies, iris, tulips, oregano, mint and cilantro.  Between all of the delicious vegetables and beautiful flowers you will have a lovely yard of blossoming plants and vegetables to tend to and enjoy.

2. Warm Season

  • The warm season in Arizona is perhaps a little earlier than it is elsewhere in the country,  This is because if you start too late the temperature will become unbearably warm for some of the vegetables and plants and they will not do well.  Vegetables that do well in the warm season include corn, peppers, green beans, melon, pumpkin, squash, eggplant, jicama, and tomatoes.  Plants that do well in the warm season include trees, daisies, verbena, calendula, larkspur, nasturtium, primrose and more.
