Frost resistant crops. Plants for cold climates

When summer comes to an end, many of us don’t like it because the temperatures start to drop drastically and soon we will barely be able to plant in our garden. I have compiled frost-resistant crops, some plants that resist the terrible winter cold more than others.

frost-resistant crops

When it comes to having your winter gardens, you need to take into account the temperatures that the weather usually reaches in the area where you live in order to get an idea of ​​the frost-resistant crops you can plant.


Frost resistant crops

We start with plants that resist temperatures of 0 degrees and even less. Keep in mind that these are crops already planted in autumn, not new crops. This is important to point out, as they could be damaged if they were new plantings.

Cauliflower: It is a culture that, although resistant to frost, does not have its ideal temperature. However, as you can see in the video I share below, it is frost resistant and can withstand temperatures down to -10º.

Kale: He grow kale or kale is another one of those cold hardy plants I recommend. Although he may seem a bit damaged by the cold waves, when they pass, he recovers.

garlic: It is a plant that does not like waterlogging, so it must be planted in a soil that is not clayey and that filters water well, and it is one of those frost-resistant vegetables.

beans: In addition to being rich in protein, it is very resistant to cold and frost, but the pea being sensitive to heat and drought, it is better to plant it in winter.
