    It only becomes a problem when the nighttime temperature doesn't fall any lower than the 70s and 80s, which was my problem back in Alta Loma. I had all these wonderful highlanders that absolutely hated my conditions. It would get into the 90s during the day, and wouldn't drop below the 80s at night.

    Now that I grow all my highlanders outside in San Diego, they are going nuts with the cool nights. The real test will be will June through September, since this will be their first San Diego summer. I'm hoping they will have acclimated enough by then to tough it through the higher temperatures.
    San diego summer temps can be brutal. They should definitely stress but u probably won't lose anything. I grew inland last year with really high summer temps and I was fine. Now that I'm near the beach it should be much better. Your temps should be similar in the valley.

    I guess I'm not as worried about the days as I am the nights. I looked at average summer nighttime temps for San Diego and they were between 65 and 68 degrees, which isn't ideal but may be tolerable.

    What's your experience been?

    The nighttime temps should be adequate for the duration of the summer. I have my plants in the garage and open it slightly at night to equal the temp outside and they always seem to get a good enough temp drop. Since your plants are outside it should be no problem.
