Fall garden planning

August and September are the best months to sow winter vegetable seeds, such as beet, broccoli, brussels sprouts, carrot, cauliflower, celery, endive, garlic, kale, kohlrabi, leek, head and leaf lettuce, onion, pea, radish, spinach, Swiss chard and turnip.

Just about any of these can be put in as transplants later in September or October.

Review our Edible Plants pages for more information on individual plants, and also review the information at the Vegetable Research & Information Center.

If you can’t find the answer on the site, don’t despair! We also have the capacity to personally assist you through our hotline.  Just contact us by email or by phone (voicemail) at 949 809-9760 and we will respond to your inquiry.
