Growing up in Southern California where the weather is mild most of the year, we never gave much thought about when we could or couldn’t plant. It was never too cold or hot or too wet or dry. When it came to shrubs and trees, you could plant them any time you wanted to. Even in Northern California where I lived and worked as a Landscape Contractor we could plant year round, provided we could work the soil. Despite temperatures in excess of 100 degrees, we did most of our planting in the summertime. But for some goofy reason, there seems to be this misconception that it’s not okay to plant this time of year if you live in the Northwest. Go figure.
