To maximize the harvest in small spaces in Montreal, we suggest planting three times during the year. The first time as soon as you have a reliable 3 degrees at night with cold hardy vegetables like leafy greens and root vegetables, the second time once you have a reliable 10 degrees at night with the warm-loving fruiting-vegetables and the third time at the end of August to fill in the empty spaces in the garden and take advantage of the end of the season. If you would like more information and an example garden plan take a look at our article on Making your garden plan in our Help! (how to garden) section of our website.
