How to Grow Winter Vegetables (Paperback)

Charles Dowding


This book explains how to come through winter with plenty of vegetables stored and others ready for harvest, and gives advice for growing plants through winter for eating during the 'hungry gap' from April to early June. Winter and early spring require a different kind of gardening from that of the summer months: not a lot grows at this time, but a well-planned plot may nonetheless be quite full. Vegetables need to be sown and planted at specific times - so the book's middle section is a monthly sowing, planting and growing calendar. The next part covers month-by-month harvesting, from garlic in July to spring cabbage and pea shoots in May. Many salads can be grown in winter, especially with a little protection from fleece and cloches. The book includes examples of frost-hardy salad plants and other vegetables, with best sowing dates and harvesting methods. The beauty of winter and its produce is captured in photographs from the author's garden.*
