What will grow in a greenhouse in Winter?

Plants I have listed here can all be grown in an unheated greenhouse through winter, providing you follow a few guidelines;

Plants.

  • The plants for winter are; Winter Lettuce, Potatoes, Spinach, kale, cabbage, bok choy, Chinese cabbage, Onions, Spring onions, Shallots, Peas, Broad beans, Garlic and Spinach. More specific information further down this page)

Guidelines.

  • Get the timing right and plant them before the days get too short and before it gets too cold.
  • Planting now means you will be ahead of the game in spring time.
  • Bear in mind, unless you have some form of lighting in your greenhouse very little actually grows in the Winter months of December and January. Things just tick over and then grow like mad when the days start to lengthen again, so don’t panic, turn up the heat or kick the greenhouse, its natures way of giving you time for Christmas shopping.
