Q&A: Cool/Warm/Perennial

Q&A_ Season

Q: What is the difference between cool, warm, and perennial plants? How do I know which ones I need?

A: Plants have adapted to live in a variety of climates and not all like the same conditions. Some crops such as peppers and tomatoes love the warm weather, but others like lettuce and spinach stop growing and start producing seeds once temperatures get too hot. There are even other plants such as rosemary and blackberries that come back year after year. Our FREE iOS, Android, or Universal Web App will show you which plants are considered cool, warm, and perennial.
