My West Virginia family has stored their seeds away for winter. The last of the autumn vegetables are in the ground and the tomato plants have given up their last fruit. It's such a contrast to our gardening schedule in Alachua County where many of us are just starting our cooler weather crops now!
All branches of the Alachua County Library District have a selection of November seeds ready to be "borrowed" and tried out. Thanks to generous donations from our friends many locations also have flower seeds to loan. Donations of home grown bouquets will be accepted in lieu of seed returns for these items.
Contact your closest location for a full list of what your library has to share.
What to plant from seed in November
- Brussels Sprouts
- Chinese cabbage
- Onions, bunching
- Peas, Snow or English
- Swiss Chard
We must give a heartfelt thanks to our recent seed sponsors. While our buildings have been closed and we've been unable to accept new seed donations from our patrons, gifts of seed from these companies have kept our offerings fresh and varied.
