Thumbs up Help for Zone 1 newbie

Hi All,
I am interested in starting a vegetable garden up here in the great white north. Any suggestions for a zone 1 newbie?

What veggies grow best? I am thinking about using a greenhouse or a half a dozen cold boxes ( easier to store).
Any help would be appreciated!

thanks!

Cool

Hi Labonteak!

I am a Zone 7 "Newbie", so I can't help you myself, but I certainly can pass on the help I got - if you go to google.com and search "Zone 1 Gardening", there will be lots of stuff you can browse. It worked for me!

"Gami", a Do It Yourself Member, is the one who steered me there.

Good luck!

Hi North Garden Gal,

Go girl! See how easy it is!!!

Hi Labonteak,

I don't believe I've ever encountered anyone asking a question from zone 1 before. I could find it, but any idea what your growing time frame is?

Lightbulb Gardening in the far north

Haven't come across many other z1'ers, but glad to see ya. Sounds like a challenge, but definitely possible.

Check out this excellent Sub Arctic Gardening Diary http://www.geocities.com/denali_higdon/Dgarden.html
And her links http://www.geocities.com/denali_higdon/Dgardlnk.html

A few general links you may or may not already have:
List of z1 gardening sites http://gardening.about.com/cs/msub67/

Another good forum specifically for northern gardeners http://forums.gardenweb.com/forums/north/

An excellent post on winter seed sowing that relates to all zones. Also gives info about spotting cold-hardy plant names. http://forums.gardenweb.com/forums/l...322147069.html

My only personal tip: for tomatoes, use the red plastic sheeting mulch - it really works wonders to make the most of sun energy.

Good luck with it!
