Plants & Veggies You'll Want To Sow In Late Winter
Whether white, purple, yellow, or orange, cauliflower likes to grow in cool weather and flourishes when the air temperature is around 60 to 69 degrees Fahrenheit.
Plant no earlier than a month before the last predicted frost. Sow the seeds in indoor boxes to keep them warmer for longer, but in warmer areas, you can sow them into the ground.
Chili Peppers
If you live in warm climates, your chili peppers will be perennials, thriving every year, but in the north, always overwinter your plants indoors to keep them going.
To know when to sow, the temperature must not dip below 40 degrees Fahrenheit. Beware of the frost, though, and ensure proper drainage, as peppers don’t like their roots to be wet.
Used in foods, sauces and teas, and having medicinal and cultural value, sage can be grown in cold and warm climes. Salvia Officinalis can even thrive in 5 degrees Fahrenheit.
Indoors, you can sow it around the end of February or late March, but later if you live in the north. Once your sage is about 3 inches tall, it's time to plant it outside.
This herb can be grown outside in temperatures even as low as 10 degrees Fahrenheit. If it drops that cold, your oregano will appear in the spring.
In growing zones 6 through 10, sow after the final overnight frost. In zones 1 through 5, sow them indoors and then outdoors later in the season, and they’ll thrive every year.
Dill adds a pickle-like tang to relishes, potato salads, and even coleslaw and is a great addition to most gardens — but particularly southern ones in the winter.
In zones 6 to 10, sow dill in late fall through early winter before the overnight frosts. For zones 2 to 5 and 11, it will need to be kept inside and grown from seeds in layers.
