Advice on specific vegetables
Warm season vegetables
These are vegetables that grow best in the summer (April–September) and generally can't tolerate temperatures below about 50° F. Perennial vegetables that produce in the summer are included here.
Cool season vegetables
These are vegetables that grow best in the fall, winter, and early spring (September–April). Some of these can be grown in the summer as well, with some care.
Seasonal plant sales
Be sure to put our popular Spring Garden Market and Fall Garden Markets on your calendar. We sell thousands of vegetable seedlings at these markets, including many unusual or heirloom varieties. It's a great chance to talk to UC Master Gardeners and get your questions answered, plus the sales support our volunteer program. Sign up for our Tips & Events newsletter to receive a monthly email of seasonal gardening tips and a list of our upcoming talks, courses, and plant sales like these.
