Cold Hardy Plants & Veggies

Brad Olson, from Olson Garden Shoppe has the list of plants that actually love the cold weather.


⌘ Pansies, Snapdragons, & petunias are very cold hardy. They are safe to put out early. The temperatures actually make them stronger, nicer plants.

⌘ Perennials can go out any time. Make sure that they have been hardened off if it is still cold outside. Hardening off means that they should be climatized to the weather outside before you plant them.

⌘ These vegetables are safe to plant in March & April. Or if weather permits, even in February for some varieties. These Vegetables actually prefer the cooler weather.

• Broccoli

• Beets

• Brussel Sprouts

• Cabbage

• Carrots

• Cauliflower

• Kohlrabi

• Lettuce

• Onions

• Parsnips

• Peas

• Potatoes

• Radish

• Spinach

• Swiss Chard

• Turnips

⌘ Grapes & Berries are also safe to plant. We receive our bare root starts in March. It is an ideal way to plant berries and grapes. They are also cheaper when they are not potted.
