Plants Recommend by Bren to Grow in Greenhouse

If you are new to growing year-round and you just want to find a place you can grow green while the snow is falling outdoors then these are the plants I recommend for you. – Brenda growing in Zone 5b Ohio

In the Autumn before the frost arrives¬† I load up my 10’x12′¬† greenhouse with annuals that are hard to find in my area as well as herbs and veggies.

Listed below is the green I grow with ease from November – April


  • parsley
  • cilantro
  • rosemary


  • any type of lettuce
  • Swiss chard
  • carrots
  • potatoes
  • sprout trays
  • tomatoes ( 2nd yr. wasn’t as good as 1st due to average days of sunshine)
Annuals ( are they annuals when I grow them year round?! )
  • tropical : passion vine / Hibiscus
  • petunias
  • geraniums
  • Ferns
  • begonias
  • succulents
  • cactus
  • dahlias
  • snap dragons

GRASS …. the kind my bunnies enjoy!
