  1. Hi there,
    I’m moving to Lethbridge from White Rock BC, in early August. I Love to make my own vegetable and herb garden and am wondering whether there are any of the above, including root vegetables that I can plant in August? Or will a potential frost kill them in Sept.?
    Any advice? Would an above ground planter work? Or could I plant ground level?
    Thank you so much!


    • Hi Lara,
      This unbelievably tardy response to your question shows I have not been doing my job. Hope you will eventually see this. If you were hoping for a fall harvest, you could plant annual herbs–chervil seems to be growing all the time in my garden. But August is too late for nearly all veggies. Maybe peas, spinach and kale–crops that can take some cold–would develop before we have a killing frost. Few plantings are done in the fall here. Even daffodils need to be in the ground by mid Sept for them to set enough roots for good spring growth. Garlic planted in the fall grows very successfully, and many people fall seed greens such as spinach, mesclun mix, lettuces and some annual herbs.

      Hope you will have successful gardening experiences in 2017. If you come to a Hort Society meeting, please introduce yourself to me.
