What to Plant and When

Whether planting from seed or transplating into the garden, timing is key. Here is some guidance provided by University of California Agriculture and Natural Resources on the best times to plant in Solano County. Your results may vary depending on your site, so use these as a guide, but also experiment to see what works in your garden!

Find container gardening guidance under our Plant Resources here.

You can also find Solano County city-specific guidance in this document.
