As the weather turns colder, many gardeners are ready to pack up their tools and wait until spring to start planting again. But why wait when you can start growing delicious winter crops? At O’Tools, you can find a variety of bulbs and plants perfect for winter gardening, including shallots, onions, and garlic.

When planting shallots, it’s important to remember that they should be harvested early to mid-summer. Plant them at the edge of your beds to leave room for other crops in between. Be sure to follow the instructions on the back of the package, including spacing and sun requirements.

When planting onions and garlic, you can harvest them before planting anything else in the spring, providing you with a delicious early-season harvest. Remember that the sun in the winter is different from the sun in the summer, so be sure to choose your garden bed wisely.

By planting winter crops, your garden can work for you even when you’re not working in it. Add some water, follow the instructions, and watch your winter garden grow!
