Plant a little early this year.

It might be a good idea to plant a little early this year

Most of California is supposed to have a cool fall and the rain will begin around December and not let up for awhile. "IT IS LIKELY THAT AN EL NINO EVENT OF WEAK TO
MODERATE AMPLITUDE IS LIKELY TO BEGIN DURING SON, AND CONTINUE THROUGH THE LATE
WINTER."
The graphical page is here at the Graphical & Seasonal Color Maps.

For those of you who want a simple statement.
It will be nice in September and maybe October, then it will be wet until May.
If you do not have deer everywhere it would be a good idea to plant a little early and let the rains take care of everything.

You may need to pre-water the area maybe 3-4 days before you plant so you can get the shovel into the ground. Do not plant in wet soil, but getting some moisture in there makes it much easier. After you've planted, water extreme. Then water well once a week until it rains.

Those of you with kids, they're out of school. Dig it?
The Santa Margarita location can get cold. We get snow every couple of years and temperatures commonly to 15F(-10C), historic lows of -4F((-20). Not recommended for open container stock - grid24_12
