The Q&A Archives: Raised bed garden crop for the winter

Question: What should I plant in my new raised bed garden? I have 4, 2X2 boxes. 2 are 11inches deep and the other 2 are 8inches deep.I am in zone 10. I want a mixture of herbs, veggies and flowers for the fall and winter.

Thank you,

Answer: Here are a few cold hardy suggestions for your planter boxes:
Coral bells; Sedum; Ornamental Grasses; Lambs ear; Ivy; Creeping Jenny; Hens and Chicks; Flowering cabbages; Swiss Chard; Sages; Pansies; Primroses; snapdragons; Creeping wirevine; New Zealand Flax. Since you're in zone 10 where winters are mild, you might also include parsley, chives, cilantro, geraniums and trailing fuchsias.

Best wishes with your container gardens!
