Q.When to sow seed- Zone 9b
I’ve been reviewing multiple planting calendars for Southern California and am finding a lot of conflicting information and have given up.
I would simply like to know what I can sow directly at this time, or within the next month or so. I am mainly interested in artichokes, brussels sprouts, onions, peppers, and tomatoes. I have a “kit” of vegetable seeds so this method would be my preference. I am open to transplanting locally purchased plants as well. I cannot find a single version of the truth if you will. But after reviewing many different planting calendars, the conclusion I walked away with is that all of the above can be directly sown at this time but I am not sure if that is the correct answer. At least one of them had each of my desired veggies as being plantable at this time. But on the other hand, others did not.
Thank you very much,
