    Hi Ken, sure you can go ahead and plant your lettuce as long as it's not too hot where you live in California, as many types of loose leaf lettuce prefer cooler temperatures to thrive. Shade cloth should help keep things a bit cooler. If you have enough seeds saved it wouldn't hurt to give it a try and if it doesn't work, you can plant your saved seeds once the temperatures start cooling towards fall. Lettuce seeds usually remain viable up to six years, so there's no need to worry your seeds will go bad soon if you don't use them right away. Good luck!

    Hi Robert, yes, you should be able to grow black beauty zucchini fine using a trellis or even a tomato cage to keep it growing upright instead of sprawling on the ground. Just make sure to install the trellis or tomato cage when you plant or while the zucchini is still young so you don't damage the root system. You may have to help it get a start climbing, but it will grow fine vertically.

    Hi Sandy, From my experience and everything I've read from University sites state that Fiddle Leaf figs are propagated through cuttings and air-layering and not through leaf cuttings. I believe what you read is correct and your leaves won't develop into a plant that you are looking for but will remain a leaf. Most plants that develop into full plants using a leaf cutting are succulents like a jade plant and African violets.

    Hi! I hope you can help me with my question. I just read on the internet that a Fiddler Fig leaf without any bark (wood) will root but, will not grow a stem. It will stay as a planted leaf even after a year or longer. I had many rooted leaves from my Fiddler Fig plant that was out of control and hitting the ceiling. I have just recently planted three rooted leaves in five different soil pots. I was planning on giving a plant to each of my five children when they come to visit me next month but, I don’t want to give them potted Fig leaves. LOL Thank you in advance! I appreciate your help!

    Hi, I collect some seeds from a loose leaf variety(unknown) and dried them in a bag. My question is whether I can replant those seeds this year ( I have a shade cloth garden) in California?
