Keep in mind that even if you have a very limited amount of space with which to work, you can almost certainly create a garden of fruits, veggies, and more.



Finding The Right Fruits To Grow – All Year Gardening Guide Basics

Obviously, your climate is going to have a certain amount of influence over what you can and can’t grow. However, certain things can work well enough in any climate, as long as you can create the ideal conditions.

Mushrooms are a good example of this. You’re also obviously going to have to take into consideration the amount of space you have.

Avocados can grow almost through the entire year. However, it can take several years to produce a quality crop of any size.

Apples are another fruit that can grow throughout much of the year, and there are others that can grow for upwards of 2 growing seasons.

For example, you can grow grapefruits throughout the winter and spring.

Bananas are another example of a fruit that can be grown all throughout the year.

Ultimately, everything can be broken down into plant-based fruits and tree-based fruits.

Bananas, blueberries, cranberries, blackberries, raspberries, and cactus pears are all examples of plant-based fruits.
