Gardening in Chico is strongly affected by Chico's climate. Because Chico usually receives no rain at all for the entire summer, most non-native plants grown here need considerable supplemental watering in the summers. However, many plants that are native to California or to one of the world's four other Mediterranean climate zones are adapted to survive dry summers without our supplemental watering.
