 The purpose of this handbook is to provide resources, guidanceand information to APS staff and studentsso that their gardens will be successful and fruitful. 
This handbook contains information on the basics about gardening in the climate of thesouthwest. There are many theories and techniques related to appropriate seeds and plants,soil, water, sun, mulching, and beds. This publication shares the best thinking of the Growing Gardens Team but you may find that you have a technique that is different or 
works better for you. That’s fine! Gardening is always an evolving art.
  This is the first edition of this handbook. We hope to revise it in the future.
