What can be grown in the garden?

Bothell is located in Planting Zone 8b. Planting zones help determine what vegetable varieties will be the most successful for each month. This takes into account the first and last frost dates for that region. In this zone, we have a long growing season. Most vegetable varieties are able to mature before the first frost date of December 1. The last frost date is April 1.

Use this chart to determine what grows best in our region and when, and visit the vegetable planting calendar guide for more details.
