Grow a Winter Garden

Don’t let the cold weather stop you from growing a garden. Consider planting winter-friendly crops and flowers this season.

For vegetables, try:

• Leaf vegetables, such as lettuce, spinach and kale – make sure to keep your soil moist!

• Root vegetables, including carrots, onions and garlic.

• Flower buds like broccoli and cauliflower – these bloom best in colder temperatures.

• Pods, such as snap peas and sugar peas.

To add some color, go for:

• Marigolds – ranging in shades from orange to bright yellow, these will thrive from fall to spring.

• African daisies – these hardy flowers perform well in California’s mild winters and come in a variety of vibrant colors.

• Pansies – these bloom in multiple colors and last throughout the winter.

• Snapdragons – tall and lush, these add color and foliage to your garden.

• Sweet alyssums – these are hardy enough to endure freezing temperatures and self-seed to provide year-round flowers.
