10 Plants for Fall and Winter Gardening

It took me several years of gardening before I actually started planting in the Fall and Winter. It quickly became my favorite time for planting, because I had a lot of success with it. Fall/Winter plants are very hardy, and are a lot of fun to grow.

So even if you don’t have much of a green thumb, Fall gardening is great for beginners! My plants always do extremely well during the Fall and Winter, because I live in a fairly mild Winter climate.

In this video I share what my plans are for Fall and Winter gardening, and I’ll be posting more videos later to show the process.

Here are 10 great plants for Fall and Winter gardening. These are all very hardy, and great for beginner gardeners.

Most Fall and Winter crops need to be planted around August so that they have plenty of time to mature before the harder frosts hit. Root vegetables are usually ready after the first frost, and I’ve found that many of the leafy greens can continue to be harvested throughout Winter in milder climates.

The growing season of these plants can be extended if you cover them with something that offers a little protection, but still allows light and air to reach the plants.

Now I’d love to hear from you: What are you planning to grow this Fall and Winter? What are some of your favorite outdoor and indoor plants? 

Let me know in the comments below, and do your best to share in as much details as possible so that others can benefit from your gardening knowledge!

I hope you are blessed, and have a garden that thrives this year!

P.S. So that my plants will all eventually go to seed and are able to germinate, I purchase all of my non-gmo seeds for gardening from Sustainable Seed Co

I'm a former sweet-tooth turned health-nut. After a difficult loss of a first pregnancy and having a second child with a heart condition, I became obsessed with health and wellness. I revamped our entire family's lifestyle, dropped seven pant sizes, and created a website where I could share our story and help support people wanting to make small changes day by day in order to live well. I also support my family by the work that I do here through advertising content, affiliates, and partnership/consultant links within content. When you click and/or order, it puts food on our table. Thanks for all your support, and may you live well and thrive!

    I’m looking forward to seeing your garden. I’m in central Texas and a person can garden most of the year here. We too moved into a different home and I’m planning a garden spot now that will be safe from my chickens and the little cottontail bunny that stays in our yard, I’m thinking lettuce and other salad stuff to start. Happy gardening!
