Gardening in Humboldt County and the rest of coastal northern California

How To Garden in Coastal Northern California

How you garden in Humboldt County depends upon the precise spot where you live and its relationship to the ocean, mountains and winds.

This narrow coastal strip of Northern California is very unique and few gardening books include information on this type of climate. The winters are mild and rainy, springs long, cool and moist, summers dry with cool to moderate temperatures.

We share this climate with few places in the world, yet there are many plants that thrive in this coastal plain. The mission of this site is to share local gardening knowledge and to link you to other inormation, both local and national.
