Winter/cold hardy weggies

Asked October 27, 2018, 7:58 PM EDT

I was frustrated when i discovered my local garden centers don't have cold hardy plants. They sell them in the spring but by August, when one should be planting winter hardy plants, they're gone. Do you know why this happens?

Thanks for your question. This is frustrating throughout Oregon, but the commercial answer is that they can’t sell them! It is hard to find seeds, let alone transplants. So, you’ll need to start your own. Here’s an Extension articlex with info: https://extension.oregonstate.edu/news/these-cold-hardy-vegetables-may-stick-it-out-through-winter Good luck!
