Do This in Your Garden

Seasonal advice for desert gardeners. Click the button for the most current advice, or scroll down to look for other times of year.

Time of Year

January is one of the slow months in our desert gardens. The days are pleasant but there is a possibility of frost at night. Winter Solstice was in December and the days are short so plants are growing slowly or are in dormancy.

We are finally coming out of the dark days of winter with the days becoming noticeably longer and the temperature generally mild.


Wildflowers are starting to bloom and plants are coming out of dormancy. Now through March, you will see a significant difference in your garden. If you are going to do any planting or pruning projects, now is the time so the plants can acclimatize and recover before the summer.

3 / March

March is one of the most beautiful times in our desert. This is the time to go on hikes or leisurely drives. Look around and see how nature designs her landscapes. Recreate this in your own gardens!

4 / April

Every year my senses are overwhelmed with the sounds, colors, and fragrance of spring as our desert reaches its fullest potential! As we are starting to wind down our garden tasks for the slower pace of summer, it is important that before the heat or you leave for the season, you complete some basic maintenance checks on your yard and irrigation.
