If you live in the southwest, you know gardening can be challenging if you are a novice. When I lived in Georgia I just put some seeds in the grounds and without much of anything, stuff grew. Of course over there we had something we don’t see much of here which is RAIN. Gardening between late October and early March is nice here but hit March-September and there is not much motivation to hang around outside if it doesn’t involve a pool. You have to be dedicated, disciplined and most importantly have a game plan!
Enter “The Garden Guy” Dave Owen’s book with a month by month guide of EXACTLY what to do in this Arizona climate. This combined with this documentary, I believe will be your key to success if you have no idea what you are doing.
The recommendations for November are:
-12 inch of soil and 1/2″ of peat moss
