The Cool Season Garden Collection includes all the seeds you need to have a successful and bountiful cool-weather garden. This collection is great for early spring or fall/winter gardening. Cool seasons are some of the best times of year to grow vegetables. The insect and disease pressure is typically reduced and the temperature outside is obviously more enjoyable.
The Cool Season Garden Collection includes six of our favorite cool-season varieties for the vegetable garden. These include English Peas, Swiss Chard, Cabbage, Carrots, Cauliflower and Broccoli. A majority of these varieties perform great when grown as transplants in our heavy-duty seed starting trays, but may also be direct seeded into the garden. Carrots should be direct-seeded. Also, with the exception of the carrots, most of these crops mature in 50-60 days.
