If you have a small-space food garden at your place, than the best way for you to reap the most from it is to make sure that something keeps growing in your garden all through the year. Instead of letting containers or plots take up all that lovely space once you have harvested your squash and tomatoes, plant a winter garden. But before anything else, it is necessary for you to know what to grow in your winter garden.
Ask any gardening guru or landscape contractors in Dubai this question and he will outright tell you to plant salad vegetables in your winter garden. These are the most commonly grown vegetables in winter gardens, because of the fact that their maturity cycle is very short and can easily be harvested before the cold weather hits full on. If you must know, most of the winter salad vegetables take just 30 to 60 days of planting to get matured.
The thing that you need to bear in mind when thinking about what to grow in your winter garden is that the best winter vegetables to grow are those that either grow in the ground or those that grow very close to it. Obviously, this means that your best pick are low growing salad vegetables such as all types of lettuce, spinach and kale. You can also choose to grow in ground veggies like beets, carrots and turnips. If you want something more out of your winter garden vegetables, try your hand at growing potatoes, radishes, broccoli, peas and even Brussels sprouts!
Given below are a few detailed facts about the vegetables that you can plant in your winter garden:
Snap peas and Snow peas
Frost-hardy peas need to be planted around 1 to 1-1/2 inches deep with at least one inch distance between them. These take around 60 days to harvest and should be planted when the temperature of the soil is around 45 degree F.
The thin seedlings of beets should be planted 1-3 inches apart from each other. Successive planting should be started at 3 to 4 weeks intervals till midsummer arrives.
Cole crops are the best option for those interested in winter gardening. They mature quickly and are tolerant to cold weather. These include cabbage, broccoli, collards, bok choy and cauliflower etc.
Winter onions can be planted in a variety. These can include Egyptian onion and walking onion etc. These need a permanent home considering the fact that they are perennials. While planting, make sure that you set them 4 inches apart.
