This page talks about how to buy winter garden seeds from David's Garden Seeds®. This list is if you live in zones 7 and higher. They will probably work in six and in the other zones they might or might not grow.
I was not going to put this page together but then I decided to. It is a list of the varieties I suggest for growing in the winter time in zone 7 or higher. They will probably grow in zone 6. Anything lower and you will have to do some homework to find out if they will grow in your zone. But because these may not, it does not mean you cannot find something that will grow in your zone. Where there is a will, there is a way.
I have chosen an heirloom where it is available on my list below. But many hybrids will grow just as good if not better.
Beet -- Detroit Dark is the best all around beet.
Broccoli -- Waltham is my favorite.
Burdock -- Chiko
Cabbage -- Early Jersey Wakefield
Carrot -- Little Finger is great because of its short size so it will mature faster
Cauliflower -- Amazing
Collard -- Georgia Southern
Fennel -- Florence (bulb type)
Pea -- Some will handle some cold, especially snow peas -- you will have to research these yourself
With flowers there are many varieties within each family. I have not grown any of them so I will list a link to to each one. These are according to Bob Webster who is the gardening guru for this area, not to mention a good friend.
The below list is our recommended herb list to grow. Each type contains several varieties so we have linked them to the page you will find them on.
Garlic can be grown in the winter time as well.
Mint is best grow in a container because where ever you plant it, it will take over.
Below are some cover crops we recommend for cold weather growing.
For more information on how to buy winter garden seeds for your particular area, contact your local county extension agent or a university in your area that has an extensive agricultural program. Remember that we are located in South Central Texas and are used to growing year round. Not everything we put up will fly in the cold weather many of you experience.
All of the variety information on the David's Garden Seeds® website, including the days to
maturity, color and size are based on data from tests done at specific
locations. Many factors, including geographic location, daytime and
nighttime temperatures, the availability of plant nutrients, many unknown climate factors and insects/pest interact to determine a variety's
performance. For information on which varieties will perform best in
your area, we recommend that you contact your local county extension agent or a Master Gardener.
