Zone 9 Vegetable Planting Guide Posted on 12 Jan 06:29 , 0 comments

Zones 9 has a long growing window for gardening. With a last frost date of January 30th or earlier and first frost date as late as November 30th to December 30th. First and last frost days may vary by 2 weeks (or more depending on the weather).


If you'd like to get a jump-start on Spring and Fall planting, it is possible to extend your season by starting seeds indoors. A simple setup might be a shop light over a table or as elaborate as a heated greenhouse or multiple racks with lights.

We hope that our USDA Zone Specific SEED planting guide with be a helpful tool in your garden planning and planting!
