Veggies to Grow in December

The cold weather makes it difficult for most plants to grow. However, you can plant these 5 vegetables in your December garden with ease!


1. Broccoli


Broccoli is extremely rich in Vitamin A, fiber, and iron. Hence, it is also known as the Crown Jewel of Nutrition. To grow them, sprinkle some seeds about 1 cm deep in the soil at a distance of 2-3 feet from one another. Provide them with 5-7 hours of sun and water them regularly every 3-4 days. Please note that broccolis are also heavy feeders, meaning they need ample nutrition. So keep your organic fertilizers like our Sea Secret Extract ready for preparing a nutritious homegrown delight.


2. Bitter Gourd

Bitter Gourds require well-fertilized sandy loam soil with good drainage. You can add seaweed extract to provide the essential nutrients after irrigating the soil. Then, sow 3-4 seeds in a small pit about an inch deep. If you wish to grow multiple bitter gourds, separate the holes by about a meter. Keep them in a good 4-5 hours of sun and water them once a week. Your harvest will be ready in 3 months.


3. Capsicum


It’s amazing how capsicum in your winter meals makes them so delicious. Adding to the joy, you can grow them in your garden with ease. Start with germinating a few seeds using the paper towel method and then transplanting the seedlings in a pot. Since capsicum loves the sun, keep them in a bright spot 4-5 hours a day and water every 3-4 days. Please note that capsicums are prone to pests and diseases. You can use Organic pest control and disease management products like Doctor Neem and Doctor Green+ to keep them safe and healthy for consumption.


4. Onion

Most of our daily meals have onions in them. The winter months are suitable for growing onions as they require cool temperatures with less humidity. Start with soaking some onion seeds in water. After 24 hours, remove the water and keep the seeds in the open for a couple of days. Then sow them in soil about 6 inches away from each other. In about two months, you will notice the onions sprouting. It will be ready for harvesting in another 6-8 weeks.


5. Turnip:

The cool climate of December is suitable for growing turnips. They need a temperature of 10°C to 15°C to thrive. Begin with sowing turnip seeds a couple of centimeters deep and about 6-7 cm apart. Then, you will only need to water them every 8-10 days. Your turnips will be ready for harvesting once they are about 1-2 inches round.


Things to Keep in mind:

  1. These vegetables require well-fertilized, porous soil for growing.

  2. Always use high-quality seeds for better germination and healthy plants.

  3. It is essential to maintain distance between your plants so that they get the required nutrients without competition.
