November Horticulture Center Updates

The vegetable garden

Fall leaves

If you don't plant cool-season crops in your garden, it's time to get your vegetable garden beds ready for winter.

See what we are growing for the winter.


In the orchard

'Fuyu' persimmon

It's time to harvest persimmons, quince, lemons and Bearss limes.

Plan now to protect your citrus from frosts and damaging freezes this winter.

In the WEL

Scarlet Oak
November is a lovely time in the water-efficient landscape gardens at the Fair Oaks Horticulture Center.

About composting

Protect yourself!

Protect yourself while working the compost pile. Potentially harmful pathogens can lurk amongst the "good guys."


Grow herbs!


Basil does well in our warm climate but can’t tolerate the winter frost.

Take cuttings and grow it indoors!


Continuing News

Asian citrus psyllid (Diaphorina citri) and Huanglongbing disease. The tiny insect damages citrus fruit but of more importance, it can transmit a deadly citrus disease.  For more:
