Containers: Cool Season

If the plants don’t live through the winter, replant them again in early spring before the last frost.

Kale (1): Substitute cabbage, broccoli, mustard greens, cauliflower, or Brussels sprouts.

Lettuce (2): Potted lettuce won’t provide endless salads, but it’s ideal to supplement store-bought greens and provide enough for sandwiches.

Cilantro (3): Substitute parsley, chives, or dill.
