What to Grow Over the Winter

Updated: Oct 13, 2020

Just because the weather has turned, it doesn't mean you should stop your gardening journey.


Who else has started to sow autumn/winter veg? 🥶


This is a Tatsoi I grew in spring this year and I'm hoping to repeat this magic over the winter although they won't be as big obviously!



“Don't forget to protect your plants with mesh from the time you sow the seeds.”

Here is my list of vegetables that I am growing:

* indicates veg I've had success growing outdoors (under cloches) in the past but this year, some will be in the greenhouse.


Chinese/ Asian Vegetables

  • Pak choi* - varieties Green, Canton White

  • Kai laan also called Chinese Kale*

  • Tatsoi*

  • Choy sum

  • Chinese cabbage

  • Garland Chrysanthemum (Shungiku/Tong Ho)

  • Mizuna*

  • Mooli/ Daikon radish

  • Chinese Celery 'Kin Tsai'

Salad Leaves

  • Lamb's lettuce /Corn salad*

  • Lettuce 'Winter Density'

  • Claytonia (Purslane)


Do I love my Chinese greens or what?


What's on your list?
