As another growing season approaches, gardeners may need to change the varieties or the types of vegetables they plant.

Our climate is changing and we are seeing more droughts, floods, and temperature swings. This weather can be hard on your vegetable garden. Some advice on how to prepare for the spring growing season and plant a climate resilient garden.

For gardening help, contact the K-State Extension Gardening Hotline at (913) 715-7050 or garden.help@jocogov.org
