  What to plant in your winter garden
Garlic, onions, and shallots taste so much better when they come from your garden. Plant now!

Don’t leave your garden yet! Late fall and early winter is the time to plant some easy edibles, and scatter the sweeps of wildflowers that will be a delight come spring and summer. Tricia has winter garden tips in our new video.

Vegetables to plant in a winter garden

All the alliums want to go in the ground now. This family—garlic, onions, leeks, and shallots—will be ready to harvest next summer. You can plant garlic, shallots, onion bulbs (sets) or live transplants of onions and leeks.

The live onion and leek transplants arrive in our warehouse and are shipped out immediately. Our last transplant shipment of the season will be here on Tuesday, November 6. Pre-order right now to reserve yours!

We can’t help you dig the furrows for these veggies, but we can give you a helping hand with information:

Wildflowers for wildlife and you

Wildflowers need the seasonal cooling and warming of winter and spring to trigger their growth.

Plant our open-pollinated wildflower seeds this month, and in the spring and summer you’ll attract butterflies, bees, and hummingbirds—depending on what you plant. We have wildflower mixes for micro-climates all over the U.S., mixes for butterflies or hummingbirds—even wildflowers that are deer resistant. We have single varieties too, like that blue Bachelor Button (also called Cornflower).

Watch our video and read our articles to get your wildflower imagination going. Then pick up some wildflower seeds and a book or two, and start creating beauty along with Mother Nature.
