Event Details

This presentation has been canceled due to COVID-19 precautions. We apologize for the inconvenience.

Vegetable gardens can be extremely bountiful or disappointing, depending on the gardener’s attention to a few basic needs. We will discuss how some advance planning (and a little effort now!) can maximize your chance of successful summer harvests of tomatoes, peppers, eggplants, beans, squash and more in summer.

Topics will include:

  •  Sunlight requirements
  •  Well-prepared soil and correct fertilization
  •  Good water management
  •  Vegetables well-adapted to our local climate and your garden
  •  Protection from pests, including vertebrate pests, insects, and diseases.

Presenter: UC Master Gardener Candace Simpson
