What to Plant in February Zone 8 & Zone 9

Arugula

Arugula is a super easy little green to grow. Each plant produces for months and gives you so many yummy leaves (assuming you like the peppery kick).

Beets

Beets is one plant you can grow for many months of the year. Plant every two weeks through April.

Broccoli

If you haven't had home grown broccoli, then you are missing out. This is a favorite of mine that I grow ever year.

Carrots

Nothing beats home grown carrots! Start planting carrot seeds mid to late January. Plant every two weeks through February.

Cabbage

For shorter winters choose cabbages that have fewer days to harvest (55-85 days) for best success.

Calendula

One of my favorite flowers to grow in the vegetable garden. This edible flower also has various culinary and medicinal uses.

Cauliflower

Early spring is a great time to grow cauliflower. There are several varities to grow including purple and cheddar colors.

Cilantro

Perfect in pots or containers and you can even bring them indoors during harsh freezing temperatures.

Dill

Dill does best in our cool season. It is sensitive to frost, so be sure to cover or bring indoors.

Kale

Start kale by seed or buy from a nursery to plant and grow all winter and early spring.

Potatoes

Home grown potatoes are so tasty and easy to grow in containers or raised beds.

Rosemary

Rosemary is one of my favorite herbs to grow in my garden. Easy to care for and grows well in containers.

Swiss Chard

Swiss Chard is a work horse in the garden. This is one leafy green that can take some heat and doesn't mind cool temps as well.

Thyme

Thyme is one of the easiest herbs to grow in the herb garden, and its dainty little flowers will attract every bee and butterfly around.
