Adding a new category to the list of pre-installed categories is simple. You'll most likely want to do this with some of the more flexible items such as Garden location and Nursery. These are typically the types of items that tend to be the most user-specific. By contrast, items such as USDA Zones, soil pH, and Sunset climate zones tend to be rarely, if ever, supplemented.

 
1 Begin by switching to the Category View. 
2 Next use the left-hand portion of the category view to select the type of category to be added.
