Question:

What kind of vegetables do well with winter sowing?


Answer:
Great question and a very popular one at that. I think my short answer would be this; practically anything!!!

But to give you a clearer answer, here's a short list of some common vegetables that can be used for wintersowing.

Broccoli
Cabbage
Carrots
Beans
Radishes
Spinach
Celery
Kale
Peas
Lettuces
Onions

Virginia Winter Sowing
by: Karen

Hi there, I'm also in Virginia. I've winter sown my plants the last 2 years, starting them in February. No problem. They'll get some of the freezing they need and be ready to grace your regular garden after the frost time but in time for spring.

You said that Potatoes could be Wintersown, but NOT seed potatoes, what is the differene if there is one?

I want to try this but wondering if it is too late and if where I live (Virginia) is good for this kind of gardening. We have had a VERY warm winter thus far, February 20 is the first snow we have had but the temps are already going back up.

What do you do in this type of weather (not normal) if the plant germinates too soon?
