Cool Season Vegetables

Cool Season Vegetables

Many heirloom vegetables are very well suited to cool season gardens in Fall and Winter. The time to plan your Fall garden is in early July, as the planting takes place late July through September. Most varieties are planted from 8-10 weeks prior to the first frost date.                     

Confused on the timing, planning and planting for a cool season garden, especially in your area? We'll walk you through the details in How to Plan for Fall and Winter. We’ve hand-selected these heirloom seeds to give you the best results in your Fall and Winter garden, giving you a sweeter and richer flavor than from the traditional Spring and Summer gardens.
