Q.No Frost in My Country..Help

Zone Malta | masterpatfx added on April 8, 2017 | Answered


I am new to gardening and would like to start growing my own herbs and vegetables.

I have been reading books on how to grow your own, and they mention the first and last average frost dates. Where I live (Malta, an island in Europe), it never gets down to 0 degrees Celcius, it never snows here basically.

So my question is, what do I do to calculate when to plant the cool and warm weather vegetables? There aren’t any frost date calculators for my country of course as it doesn’t frost here.

Does it mean I can grow all year long?

Thanks a lot!

No frost probably does mean that you can grow year round. Lucky you!

And there are still some vegetables that do well in cooler weather (peas, lettuces, broccoli, cabbages, onions, etc.) that could be planted before you season fully warms. And others (tomatoes, peppers, eggplants, basil, etc.) that will be happiest if you hold of putting them in the soil until warm weather has arrived.

Is there an experienced local gardener who you can talk with, or at least observe, for timing tips?
