The Q&A Archives: Greenhouse Veggies And Lily's

Question: I have recently moved into a green house and want to start growing some veggies and Lily's. Is is possible to purchase lily's or do I have to wait til spring? Also what veggies do you suggest that I grow in a Lily environment? Thanks for your help

Answer: Lily bulbs are often available for fall planting and could be planted now. Some veggies to experiment with would certainly include salad greens, spinach, and herbs such as chives and parsley. To some extent your choices will be affected by whether or not you plan to force the lilies for a particular date, and what type of heating (if any) you plan to provide.
