What To Grow In February
Posted on February 17 2020
Just because it's wintertime doesn't mean that gardening can't happen. In fact, some of our favorite plants to enjoy in spring and summer are grown in February. Here is a list of plants to grow in February:
Herbs: Parsley, garlic, basil and chives are not only great to have on-hand for recipes but they are all deer-resistant plants that can keep deer away from destroying growing sites.
Fruits: It's berry time! Start planting all kinds of berries to eat in spring and summer. In addition to berries, cantaloupe and watermelon can begin growing in February.
Vegetables: February is a good time to plant veggies such as lettuce, onion, broccoli, cauliflower, eggplant and celery.
Winter gardening tip: Start thinking about deer fence installation as we inch closer to spring - prime season for deer movement and damage in gardens. Without a deer fence, gardeners will see agriculture damage and will keep deer coming back for more with each growing period.
