Savannah GA or Greenville SC – Which Is Better For Gardening?

savannah greenville

Q: I am considering moving from Sacramento to either Georgia (Savannah area) or the Greenville area of South Carolina. I think the soil in that area of South Carolina is largely clay, so I’m imagining Georgia would be better from a gardening perspective? 

A: Unless you plan to garden on a large scale, either Greenville or Savannah would be fine places to grow vegetables and fruits. Both have plenty of sunshine and a long period of frost-free days. I’m sure there are Master Gardener groups in both cities who could show you the ropes of Southern gardening. I have great comments from a longtime gardener who has had gardens in both places here.
