Already started? Go to: October in the Planty Garden

Starting in October: it's still possible 🎉

You can still start a Planty Garden in the autumn. However, you mainly sow and plant now for an extra early harvest in the spring.

Shouldn't you set up a vegetable garden in March?

That's true for a traditional vegetable garden. There you first have to dig up a piece of land, clear it of weeds, fertilize it ... and do it all over again every year. Such a mega task is too much work for a few months of cultivation, so you usually start in March.

But since you set up a Planty Garden in no time, it doesn't matter when you start. You're preparing it for this year and for the years to come. As long as there is something to sow 😋

Starting a Makkelijke Moestuin (Planty Garden) can be done from February to November.

It doesn't really matter when you start exactly. Because if you set up a Makkelijke Moestuin now, you are already preparing for next year. And the years after that.

You can start from February until November

You only have to set up a vegetable garden box once. After that, you will have endless enjoyment: season after season and year after year.

Why starting in October can still be fine

  • In October, you can still sow or plant some vegetables: from garlic to winter lettuce, from kale to spinach. For 8 of our seed varieties, it is now the right time. With some protection - like a cover for your vegetable garden bed - even more is possible:

Why starting in June is so much fun

  • From the varieties you sow now, you can harvest some at the beginning of winter, while others can be harvested extra early in spring.
  • Some of our vegetables can withstand severe frost and can even be harvested in the middle of winter:

Winter purslane can even withstand severe frost.
  • From mid-September, you can plant garlic cloves and winter onions. Then they'll have enough time to establish well and you can harvest them next year.

Garlic and winter onions, now is the right time to plant them.
  • And finally, on most of our seeds we now offer a nice discount 🙂

These types can be sown (or planted) now.

Many people think that you can't sow anything at this time, but you still can. You are sowing now for the winter and early spring.

You can still sow:
And with extra protection from a crop cover - like the MM-Muts - you can sow these too:
