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.
