Veggie Starts for Fall Bounty & Garlic Bulbs for Spring Harvest

September is a great time to plant in the garden, allowing you time to reap a harvest well into Fall. We grow a large variety of Fall crops right here at Fort Collins Nursery. Many of them are ready now and will be available through September. Plant garlic bulbs in early Fall for harvest next summer. Here are the available veggie starts and garlic varieties:

    SO the veggie starts such as romaine, kale, and baby bok choy will grow throughout the fall until the frost?

      Hi Rebecca,
      Depending on the conditions, (i.e. protection, cold frame, hoop house, etc.), these crops can last well into winter. If they are placed in the ground without protection, they are often able to withstand one or two early light frosts. These crops specifically perform well in cooler temperatures. For best results, plant our starts early in the Fall, fertilize them and reap the harvest! For more information please contact us at 482-1984.

    Is it too late to start some of these by seed?

      Hi Reb,
      It is not too late to start these crops by seed. For best results make sure you work the soil well so that it is not compacted. Plant your seed, fertilize, and watch it grow! Because of our higher temperatures right now make sure that they stay moist into Fall. Good luck!

    I planted kolrabi and beets, they were plants in plugs will they produce this fall?

    Sorry forgot to mention that I planted the kolarbi and beets in the ground about 21/2 weeks ago.

      Hi Jana,
      Yes, you should get a harvest still this fall. Our weather and how early we get our first frost will effect the size of the veggie that you get. You may want to consider protecting your plants a little bit as it gets colder at night, by using a small hoop house or covering them with a blanket. Feel free to give us a call or stop in to visit with one of our experts further. Happy harvesting!
