Vegetables & Fruits
Despite the short growing season, there is a variety of vegetables and fruits that can be successfully grown on the Avalon Peninsula. The Botanical Garden has a small demonstration vegetable garden which features a wide variety of produce as early as mid-June, as well as some fruiting trees and shrubs.
Local information on growing fruits and vegetables has been posted here for your information.
To learn more, please visit our WORKSHOP PAGE for a list of upcoming programs. During our open season, drop by for our Afternoon in the Garden program, for an opportunity to talk to a member of our gardening staff.
Some of the vegetables that have successfully been grown in the past include (varieties often change every year):
- spanish onions
- beans (both climbers and bush beans)
- tomato (both outside and in the greenhouse)
- cucumber (in the greenhouse)
