At LowCo Gardeners, we understand the importance of seasonal gardening. Knowing what to plant and when is crucial for a thriving garden that blossoms year-round. This guide will walk you through the best plants to grow each season, ensuring a vibrant and healthy garden.
Spring: A Time for New Beginnings
Early Blooms to Kickstart the Season
Spring is the perfect time to plant early bloomers like tulips, daffodils, and hyacinths. These flowers bring the first splash of color to your garden after the winter months.
Vegetables to Start in Spring
For vegetable gardens, this is the time to plant lettuce, peas, and radishes. These cool-weather crops will give you a head start before the summer heat sets in.
Summer: Full Sun and Vibrant Colors
Flowering Plants for Summer Beauty
Summer is all about vibrant colors. Plant petunias, marigolds, and zinnias for a burst of color. These sun-loving flowers thrive in the heat and brighten any garden space.
Vegetables for a Summer Harvest
Tomatoes, peppers, and cucumbers are ideal for planting in early summer. They require more warmth and will be ready to harvest in late summer.
Fall: Preparing for the Cooler Months
Autumn Flowers and Foliage
As the weather cools, it’s time to plant chrysanthemums and pansies. These flowers can handle the cooler temperatures and keep your garden colorful.
Planting for a Fall Harvest
Root vegetables like carrots and beets, as well as leafy greens like kale and spinach, are perfect for fall planting. They thrive in cooler weather and can be harvested in late fall.
Winter: Planning and Preparation
While winter is a quieter time for gardening, some plants like evergreens and winterberry can withstand the cold and add life to your garden.
Indoor Gardening and Preparation
This is also a great time for indoor gardening with herbs like basil and mint. Additionally, use this time to plan your garden for the coming year and prepare your soil.
