Time to grab your fall & winter garden transplants

Saturday, August 24, 2013

It is not too late to get your garden in for fall and winter harvests.  If you decided to not go the seed route, now is the perfect time to head to your nearest big box hardware store or large nursery to pick up cold crop transplants.

The trick is to have your produce full size by the end of October.  Come November through January, your plants will grow very little as daylight hours are short and temperatures too cool.

With gardening interest on the rise, last year was the first year I saw that my local Lowes actually had vegetable plants.  Meijer’s has had veggie plants all season.  This week I saw that Lowes, Meijer's, and Walmart all have cool season transplants for fall gardening.

Now is the perfect time to pick up broccoli, cabbage, lettuce, kale, or any other cool season crop as well as perennial herbs and get planting!
