The summer rainy season is off to a good start and therefore it’s time to get out in the garden! For many seed varieties in the Native Seeds/SEARCH collection, this is traditional time to plant.

These varieties have adapted over the centuries to the burst of seasonal moisture and warm temperatures of late June through July. So get out there and start planting!
